At the July 2016 Adaptation Community Meeting, Karyn Fox of Tango International presented findings from an assessment on adaptation options in Feed the Future projects. In this photo from her fieldwork, representatives of women's and men's focus groups convene a Community Validation Team meeting in Ethiopia’s Tigray state to reach consensus on community level climate change adaptation strategies.

Adaptation Community Meetings

At monthly Adaptation Community Meetings, development practitioners and professionals exchange experiences related to their climate change adaptation work. Meetings take place each month in Washington, DC, are open to the public and are accessible to remote participants. Regular attendees include government officials, international development professionals, academic researchers and private sector representatives.

The meetings emphasize frank and informal discussion of problems and solutions. Meetings cover a range of topics, including:
  • Presentation and analysis of academic research related to climate change adaptation and its field applicability
  • Demonstration of climate change adaptation methods or tools
  • Findings and lessons learned from field-based climate change adaptation projects
We invite you to join the discussion and participate in upcoming Adaptation Community Meetings!
