WRI focuses on helping institutions shift incentives, take on new mandates, and build capacity to support the process of integrating climate risks into day-to-day activities.
There is a need for change in the structure and function of many national institutions if policies are to address the decision-making challenges posed by climate change, and to meet the needs of poor and vulnerable populations. WRI works to strengthen key institutions – such as an agriculture ministry, river basin authority, or village development committee – so that vulnerability and adaptation is integrated into core planning and programming.
