Climate change, disasters and development

The Climate Cluster work supports decision-makers and marginalized and at-risk communities in acting on climate change, enhancing disaster resilience and working towards development that is ecologically, environmentally and economically sustainable. We collaborate with research institutions, governments, civil society organizations, businesses, grassroots communities and donors in Asia and the Pacific to produce credible and relevant knowledge for decision-making across all levels.

Our aim is to engage in relevant policy processes, build the capacities of key stakeholders and facilitate the empowerment of those who are marginalized and at-risk. We do so to enable meaningful and inclusive action on climate change and disaster risk in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). Through this work, we contribute to the improvement of the health and well-being of those communities that are socially, economically, politically, environmentally and geographically marginalized, and at risk of the impacts of climate change, disasters and unsustainable development.
