Resilience: Living with climate change

We’re working with communities around the world to prepare them for the climate change impacts we can’t avoid — while addressing the ones we can.

A certain amount of global warming is inevitable, already harming people and causing widespread damage. So we develop solutions with farmers, fishers and coastal communities to ensure we can adapt to the changes yet to come.
