Take advantage of opportunities to give back to the climate adaptation field and help shape its future!
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.
Participate in the Resilience Dialogues Strategy Discussions: The completion of our Fall 2018 dialogues will mark more than 20 communities served by the program over the past three years. We have heard from many of you that now is a good opportunity to think about how our program can scale and grow so that we are able to bring even more value to more communities. We agree, and are grateful to be able to thoughtfully consider strategic issues like how to successfully and equitably recruit small and underserved communities to participate in the Resilience Dialogues, and how to measure the impact of our program in terms of its contributions to community climate resilience. We hope you will contribute your ideas to this process! Please reach out to Rachel Jacobson at [email protected] if you would like to be contacted about opportunities to participate.
