Pew Advances a Comprehensive Approach to Limiting Climate Change Impacts

Highlights of ongoing work on fiscal planning, resilience strategy, and nature-based solutions

Tall trees and vegetation surround a bog, with the water reflecting the towering greenery.

Pew is working with partners to develop the first national map of U.S. peatlands—and with local, state, and the federal governments to advance additional adaptation strategies.

The Pew Charitable Trusts promotes a nonpartisan, multiple-policy-area approach to address the impacts of a changing climate. Pew leads and supports convenings of climate leaders and stakeholders—including as a sponsor of the 2024 National Adaptation Forum—to build a shared understanding of climate conditions and risks, and to identify effective, scalable solutions.

Pew helps state leaders update budgeting practices to better financially prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters—and promotes local, state, and regional planning to help communities and nature withstand climate impacts. At the federal level, Pew advances policies that improve how agencies coordinate with and support state and local resilience efforts.

The resources collected here highlight some of Pew’s climate adaptation and mitigation work.
