Adaptation is the key to a more resilient future. The climate change crisis continues to accelerate. Efforts at mitigation have been the principal focus of climate action for years—and yet, temperatures and sea levels continue to rise at unprecedented rates, while extreme weather events increase in frequency and severity. We must adapt to thrive, not just survive.


Adaptation 101 is a unique “mini-course.” This workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the field of adaptation and resilience.

The topics include:
• Introducing climate adaptation
• Basic approaches for businesses and communities
• Sea-level rise, coastal resilience, managed retreat & migration
• Equity, finance and implementation techniques — actionable items

The public version of this overview is delivered live online in four one-hour modules across four weeks, one episode weekly, in an interactive format. Client versions of Adaptation 101 — tailored to your organization — can be flexibly organized to meet specific needs.

Adaptation 101 is the ideal starting point for adaptation novices before attending our other workshops.

Adaptation Leader has created a suite of workshops that provide essential facts and answers to the core questions. Workshop participants will learn how climate adaptation can affect their organizations, to identify climaterelated threats and opportunities, and where to begin in developing response strategies.

These workshops are intended as a first step for those organizations recognizing that they need to up their adaptation game to adjust to the new normal.
