Leaders Summit on Climate: USAID Announcements
On April 22-23, President Biden hosted a virtual Leaders Summit on Climate to catalyze global ambition to address the climate crisis. The Summit convened world leaders to galvanize efforts to keep the vital goal of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius within reach.
As part of this effort, USAID will launch new initiatives that help address the climate crisis, including:
Supporting the Agricultural Innovation Mission for Climate
USAID will support US leadership in the Agricultural Innovation Mission for Climate (AIM-C) including through investments in the CGIAR System to accelerate global agricultural innovation and the use of climate-smart technologies by smallholder farmers. The AIM-C initiative will be advanced at the UN Food Systems Summit in September 2021, and launched at COP26 in November 2021 through the UK’s COP26 Campaign on Adaptation.
