Education and Climate
Climate change poses challenges to education infrastructure and learning outcomes.
Climate change poses challenges to education infrastructure and learning outcomes. It impacts marginalized populations disproportionately, worsening poverty and exacerbating non-climate stressors.
USAID’s education programming plays a key role in responding to these challenges. Education equips learners with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities to adapt to and overcome climate challenges, and strong education systems can implement proactive measures to reduce climate shocks and stressors in the long-term.
