ASAP at the California Adaptation Forum
Are you coming to the California Adaptation Forum? ASAP is blanketing the forum with member presentations, daily newsletter coverage (via the Daily Digests), and plenty of opportunities to meet and network with other ASAP members. Below are a few sessions that you can meet-up with other ASAP members and stay up to date on ASAP activities:
Join us for an ASAP-hosted Accelerator Workshop and In-person ASAP Member Meeting on August 29 (RSVP). The Accelerator Workshop, From National to Global: ASAP Members Lead the Transfer of Adaptation Best Practices to the Global Climate Action Summit, will provide members an opportunity to generate a white paper on the best practices and needs identified during the California adaptation forum to share at the Global Climate Action Summit in September. Workshop participants will draw on the ASAP Daily Digests and their own experiences, to synthesize the knowledge, experiences, and skills shared during the conference. The second half of the workshop will serve as an ASAP In-Person Meeting and will feature brief presentations on the organization’s growth and accomplishments over the past year and current member activities. Working in small groups, members will provide recommendations for how ASAP can continue to support member needs and grow the organization.
Are you a Resilience Dialogue Alum or just want to learn more about the program? Join us for breakfast on Wednesday, August 29. ASAP will host a Resilience Dialogues Community Meeting where participants will hear updates from the program’s alumni communities and engage in a facilitated, online and in-person conversation about enhancing local community capacity for building climate resilience.
We are also thrilled to be honoring recipients of the 2018 California Regional Adaptation Leadership Award (RALA) during Wednesday’s Forum plenary.
For ASAP members who can’t attend, be sure to watch for the CAF Daily Digests! We will be sending out a special daily edition of the ASAP Member News that will include a list of ASAP member presentations at CAF and summaries of the day’s events.
