National Adaptation Forum
May 9, 2017 - May 11, 2017
The Forum gathers the adaptation community to foster knowledge exchange, innovation and mutual support for a better tomorrow. We invite you to join the convening of adaptation practitioners from around the country focused on moving beyond adaptation awareness and planning to adaptation action.
The Forum includes opportunities for professional development through formal trainings, facilitated practitioner presentations, and informal exchange of information all at a single venue. This event affords attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to make their work climate smart, share what they have learned with others, and develop a stronger network to be climate savvy in all that they do.
The goal of the National Adaptation Forum convening is to develop a program that provides guidance through the steps of the adaptation process, as well as across the spectrum of adaptation activities in the United States and around the world today. Trainings and sessions should aim to be cross-sectoral in an effort to demonstrate the integrated nature of successful adaptation. As such they should engage multiple perspectives, either across sectors, geographies or stakeholders (e.g. national, tribal, regional, state, local, private, non-profit, educational).
