Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Climate change is real. It is not a problem of the future, it's a problem of now. The disruptions it is causing require that we change the way we consider planning and management in order to ensure the future of natural and built systems.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our main objectives include:

Building the field of adaptation by coordinating, magnifying, and making climate change adaptation capacity and resources more accessible.
Building capacity of current and future professionals in planning and management across sectors so they can engage in climate change adaptation.
Supporting implementation of adaptation strategies by providing capacity to partners eager to take climate adaptation action.

Creating a core team of climate change adaptation specialists with extensive on-the-ground experience. This critical mass will strive to ferment and distill new ideas that build this new paradigm, both as a team and with a network of partners.
Acting as an adviser and facilitator for groups wishing to engage on climate change adaptation but lack internal support or capacity.
Creating training opportunities and materials (adaptation workshops, guidebooks, curriculum and teaching, field experience).
Creating networks of projects and partners with similar concerns to support adaptation policy and building the field of adaptation science. One particular mechanism to achieve this is through the interactive online database – the Climate Adaptation Knowledge Exchange (CAKE).

EcoAdapt is working to ensure the success of these past efforts by delivering a framework for climate adaptation. We help governments, organizations, and individuals figure out how to do what they do effectively, even in the face of climate change.
