International Fellows Network

Adaptation Leader LLC is pleased to announce the creation of a new group called the International Fellows Network (IFN) to facilitate ongoing communication with all of those adaptation and resilience practitioners, policymakers, students and academics who have expressed interest in working with us.Those initially invited to join IFN had responded to our Associate search announcement.We were overwhelmed by the response to our announcement and impressed by the credentials contained within the large number of applications we reviewed. We at Adaptation Leader would like to stay connected with this talented group and, accordingly, we have extended invitations to join our International Fellows Network.

The IFN will be housed our online collaboration platform known as CAPPS ™ — Climate Adaptation Practitioners, Policymakers & Scholars. Basic information on CAPPS is posted on the Adaptation Leader website at: https://www.adaptationleader.com/capps-program/.Through CAPPS, we will be able to share information with IFN participants, ask for your input on Adaptation Leader offerings, and convene dialogues with the broader adaptation and resilience community about new and upcoming developments such as the road to COP26 this November.

By actively engaging in the IFN, your voice will be heard as we work to advance the adaptation and resilience field. As we grow, we will reach out to Fellows about opportunities to join our Team or to support projects on a case-by-case basis.

If you would like further information about IFN, please contact Ira Feldman at: ira@adaptationleader.com
