Climate change and development are intricately connected. Nevertheless, as we seek to mainstream climate resilience into countries’ development plans – we must give adequate attention to some important and emerging topics to ensure that the overall resilience of communities and investments is sustained over time. The Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR), an investment program systematically engaging 28 pilot countries to mainstream climate resilience in their national development plans for transformation at scale is proud to launch this new learning series. The PPCR Learning Series will bring together internal and external experts to foster open dialogues, exchange ideas and share lessons on key topics pertaining to resilience planning. Staff from GPs, CMUs and CCSAs, who are engaged in conceiving SCDs, CPFS, IDA led MSPs, SPCRs, or any other strategic country planning processes, including the INDCs, are invited to this set of learning series.
