EcoAdapt , founded by a team of some of the earliest adaptation thinkers and practitioners in the field, has one goal - creating a robust future in the face of climate change. We bring together diverse players in the conservation, policy, science, and development communities to reshape conservation and resource management in response to rapid climate change.

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 conservation, planning, and development so they can engage in climate change adaptation.
  • Supporting implementation of adaptation strategies by providing capacity to partners eager to take climate adaptation action.
EcoAdapt aims to achieve these goals by:
  • 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 conservation paradigm, both as 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).
