USAID Advancing Capacity for the Environment


  • Global



Through USAID’s Advancing Capacity for the Environment (ACE) project, led by our partner DAI and in partnership with Training Resources Group (TRG) and ForumOne, Environmental Incentives is facilitating new knowledge generation and sharing to contribute to more effective and equitable environment and climate programs.

This five-year initiative (2022-2027) supports communicating and sharing knowledge and learning across USAID’s Centers for Climate Positive Development; Energy, Infrastructure, and Cities; and Natural Environment. ACE is USAID’s primary mechanism for capturing, analyzing, sharing, and adapting good practices to advance USAID’s technical leadership and successful project implementation of its portfolio in the biodiversity, natural climate solutions, infrastructure, energy, green cities, climate, and land and resource governance sectors.

The overarching objective is to enhance USAID’s effectiveness, leading to positive and sustainable development outcomes through four key task areas:

  • communications,
  • training,
  • knowledge management, and
  • facilitation/organizational development.

ACE activities enable the integration of diverse voices on climate change and natural and built environments into USAID’s broad portfolio of development and humanitarian programs. As the Knowledge Management lead, EI facilitates the knowledge cycle—generate-capture-share-apply—through a range of activities. EI manages several internal and external knowledge portals, including four of USAID’s “Links” websites (UrbanLinks, BiodiversityLinks, LandLinks, and ClimateLinks), strategically capturing and sharing user-friendly information to ensure that USAID’s audiences can apply lessons, experience, and evidence to improve the effectiveness of their environment and climate programs.

We can co-create lasting change.

We help our partners improve the performance of conservation and development programs.
