Climate Adaptation and Resilience
We support efforts to curb climate change, but the effects of climate change are intensifying, and we need to adapt now. Climate change adaptation means building strategies and tools to reduce uncertainty and risk and become more resilient to the economic and societal impacts of a changing climate. Our members include the scientists, data experts, entrepreneurs, and visionaries working to build adaptation and resilience solutions.
