The purpose of the ASAP Prize is to improve and accelerate professional practice in climate adaptation by highlighting the practices of leading U.S. communities and organizations that have reduced net losses and decreased vulnerability of natural/human systems to extreme weather events and climate change. The promising practices from these models will provide guidance and encouragement for other communities. The prize celebrates progress in an emerging field and strengthens the professional foundations of current climate adaptation efforts.
All public, private, nonprofit, and academic organizations within the United States and its territories that had implemented projects to reduce the vulnerability of human and/or natural systems were welcome to apply. Applications were submitted by the organization directly involved in the implementation of the project.
