What is an Adaptation Professional?

What makes someone an adaptation professional? Because of the nature of adaptation work, it may be difficult to pinpoint your place in the field. ASAP is here to help. Let's cut through the jargon, both professional and academic, and get clear on what it means to be an adaptation professional. At ASAP we use a simple answer for the question "What is an adaptation professional?" An adaptation professional is someone who seeks to integrate future climate information into their job. That's it.

Want to dig in further? Consider the following questions on how adaptation aligns with your role:

  • How does climate change intersect with your professional work? Can you think of a specific example of how you're addressing climate change in your job or field?
  • What is urgent about addressing climate change now, specifically regarding your field or profession?
  • How will your job change as the climate changes?

ASAP is a home for any and all who want to evolve their adaptation career - whether you're just starting out in college or 40 years into the field.  ASAP is connecting the adaptation field, find out how we are supporting the people who build climate resilience by exploring our program areas below:
