Grants to EcoAdapt
2012 (Duration 2 years)
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WASHINGTON — EcoAdapt builds the field of adaptation by making climate change adaptation capacity and resources more accessible. EcoAdapt, along with partners, will create and implement the first National Adaptation Forum. EcoAdapt will design an agenda that will lead participants through the adaptation process - from problem identification to planning to implementation and evaluation. The purpose is to provide a forum to support and engage practitioners in the development and implementation of adaptation strategies. Fiscal constraints currently limit travel for state, local and tribal employees. This grant will support a percentage of registration and travel costs in order to ensure adequate geographic and sectoral representation and participation.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded EcoAdapt $400,000 between 2003 and 2013.
