Who plans the National Adaptation Forum?

The National Adaptation Forum was created by a diverse group of professional adaptation practitioners and community members from the private and public sectors concerned about the need to anticipate and prepare for the potential impacts of climate change. It represents a collective effort to enhance the resilience of our Nation’s communities, natural systems and economy in the face of a changing climate, through open participation from all sectors across the country. The Forum is led by a Steering Committee responsible for planning the plenaries,  helping fundraise and support the outreach of the Forum and a Program Committee responsible in the call for proposals and final Forum program development. The Forum also has an Equity and Climate Justice Working Group that provides advice to both the Steering and Program Committees to help bridge the equity gap in climate adaptation through the Forum’s program and activities.

All three planning committees are coordinated by Forum Project Coordinator, Carey Schafer. If you are interested in joining one of our planning committees please reach out to her at Info@NationalAdaptationForum.org.
