WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Georgetown Climate Center (GCC) seeks to advance effective climate, energy, and transportation policies in the United States. GCC proposes to expand the Adaptation Clearinghouse to include reports on implementation. This grant will support evaluating and reporting on progress on the implementation of Adaptation Plans in 17 states, and study adaptation after three extreme weather events to synthesize common themes and problems. The purpose is to identify policies, practices, and actors that are contributing towards the effective implementation of climate adaptation strategies and determine how best to eliminate roadblocks and promote progress.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Georgetown University $250,000 between 2010 and 2013.
