1. Capacity Building

Climate change adaptation is a developing field that requires a significant amount of capacity in order to move from theory to action. Practitioners are rarely trained to integrate climate change into their work through formal mechanisms, which has created both great need and opportunity. Building capacity of organizations, practitioners, and the public can increase the ability to plan, develop, and implement adaptation actions. Example strategies within this category include designing or reforming institutions to support resilience, conducting impacts and vulnerability assessments, investing in training and outreach efforts, and developing new tools and resources, among others. The majority of projects uncovered in our survey are focused on building capacity to address climate change.
