The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) has been promoting sustainable living for over 40 years. Established in 1976, we are a national nonprofit that helps people by championing small-scale, local, and sustainable solutions to reduce poverty, promote healthy communities, and protect natural resources. NCAT was originally created during the oil crisis of the 1970s to develop inexpensive energy-saving strategies for low-income communities.

We believe we are qualified to provide climate adaptation services in the areas of construction, law and cities based, predominantly, on our experience completing such projects. As example, the framework of adaptive law informs and inspires the practice of law by Josh Stack, in advising clients such as cities and universities in how to design the legal and policy framework for adaptation projects. A project example here is advising a city land bank in how to implement a city building deconstruction pilot program.
