Local Governance and Private Sector Opportunities for Climate Adaptation, Sustainable Livelihoods, and Biodiversity in Madagascar

USAID Madagascar requested technical assistance from USAID/Washington through the CEADIR activity for training and technical assistance on climate adaptation, opportunities for improving local governance, and expanding private sector engagement and financing.


The USAID/Madagascar Mission requested technical assistance from USAID/Washington through the Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment, and Resilience (CEADIR) activity for training and technical assistance on climate adaptation, opportunities for improving local governance, and expanding private sector engagement and financing. This assistance was to support the sustainable livelihoods and biodiversity programming of USAID/Madagascar’s Hay Tao and Mikajy activities and provide important input for the country’s NAP process. The USAID/Economic Growth Education, and Environment Bureau’s Global Climate Change and Economic Policy Offices provided funding and technical and managerial support.

CEADIR: 1) identified, assessed, and raised awareness on opportunities to mainstream climate adaptation into governance and development activities at the regional level; 2) collected and incorporated regional and private sector input into the national adaptation planning process; and 3) provided support on climate finance. CEADIR collaborated closely with Mikajy and Hay Tao and USAID/Madagascar. CEADIR assistance began in June 2018 and continued through March 2019. This report presents the results of the following tasks:

  • Support for climate vulnerability and adaptation;
  • Mainstreaming climate adaptation into governance frameworks in Madagascar;
  • Private sector analysis for climate adaptation in Madagascar; and
  • Support for climate finance.
