Give back to the climate adaptation field and help shape its future.
The ASAP network runs on the power and dedication of volunteers. THANK YOU for contributing to this community and to the adaptation field.
The ASAP Mentorship Program connects emerging climate resilience and adaptation professionals with accomplished ASAP members. The program provides a nine-month framework for engagement focused around the needs of the mentee, and gives the mentor an opportunity to share their professional knowledge, experience, and network.
Mentor and mentee recruitment occurs annually in early fall. Email email@example.com for more information.
Thank you to our co-chairs and mentors!
Co-chairs: Monica Gregory and Katharine Stover

Member Led Groups
ASAP's Member-Led Groups, including virtual member-led interest groups and in-person Hubs, are the heart of our membership network - and they couldn't function without volunteer leaders and co-chairs.
2020 Member-Led Interest Groups will kick off in the new year and many groups will be recruiting new leadership. Join the Member-Led Interest Group Orientation to learn more.
Thank you to all our group leaders and co-chairs!
Registry Project Working Group
ASAP and our partners at EcoAdapt and the Geos Institute are creating a process for connecting climate adaptation service providers with service seekers. The Registry will help you articulate your experience, expertise, and skills in a way that is consistent across the field, making it easier for potential clients and collaborators to find you and learn about how you can help them build climate resilience. Guided by ASAP's Living Guide on the Principles of Climate Adaptation, working group members advise on the development of the Registry tool and process.
This working group is currently closed. Email Rachel Jacobson for more information.
Thank you to our members!
Code of Ethics Working Group
The ASAP Code of Conduct and Professional Ethics was developed by ASAP members and adopted in 2017.
This working group is currently inactive.
Thank you to all of our members responsible!
The Resilience Dialogues
The Resilience Dialogues is a public-private collaboration that works to build climate-resilient communities through facilitated dialogues among scientists, practitioners, and community leaders. ASAP and the U.S. Global Change Research Program work in close coordination on the design, development, and implementation of this effort, along with support from the American Geophysical Union's Thriving Earth Exchange, the Meridian Institute, and other public and private entities.
Thank you to our facilitators and subject matter experts!
