Erin Coughlan de Perez co-chairs climate strategy report to USAID

A new report commissioned by the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) proposes targets and recommendations for USAID to effectively implement its ambitious Climate Strategy in agrifood system investments.

Feinstein Research Director Erin Coughlan de Perez served as Co-Chair of the BIFAD subcommittee, leading multidisciplinary evidence gathering to advise BIFAD with independent recommendations to improve USAID programming and strategies.

The report presents six detailed operational and technical recommendations and targets for adaptation, mitigation, and finance in agrifood systems that align with those of USAID’s 2022–2030 Climate Strategy.

With the practical implementation of these recommendations, BIFAD envisions a climate-resilient future in agrifood systems.
