In the new edition of USAID’s FrontLines magazine, read how the Agency is working to help people around the world prepare for and react to the rising temperatures and unpredictable weather that are the hallmarks of climate change. Some highlights:
- USAID’s partnership with NASA is bringing cutting-edge satellite technology down to earth in several countries, including in Bangladesh where early flood predictions are saving lives and protecting livelihoods.
- In southern Africa, we’re helping create “Resilience Villages” where people talk up the real-world impact of climate change happening in their neighborhoods and come up with common-sense solutions that work for them and the planet.
- Sweeping changes—figuratively and literally—are on display as Nepalis embrace broom grass as one solution to preserve the health of their country’s soil.
- And, will this be the year that the world gets serious about climate action? USAID’s Charles North says yes, and explains how USAID is helping countries act on climate and join in this global moment of change.
Also in this issue we have a bonus: FrontLines is hosting a new photo contest. This time we’re asking you to send us your best images that showcase the ways USAID is helping women and girls around the world. The deadline is Oct. 30.
