Discover New Connections

In addition to the cutting-edge projects, research, strategies, tools, and resources showcased and discussed in the sessions, the opportunities to network are invaluable — so much so that for some attendees, this is the primary reason they attend the Forum.

Whether you’re curious about new legislation, new research and tools, or new developments in finance or insurance markets, we have you covered! By attending the Forum, you will have the opportunity to hear directly from community leaders, decision-makers, and technical experts on emerging trends and recent developments facing the adaptation field while learning about tangible approaches and strategies to put new knowledge to use.

Join the Movement

In order to effectively and equitably adapt to climate change impacts, we must break down silos and bridge divides to build resilience… together. The Forum gathers diverse participants who cross sector lines to share experiences, insights, and inspiration, as well as challenges and lessons learned. Attendees also explore how partnerships can provide the political will, technical expertise, and the most effective action plans necessary to overcome inertia and change business-as-usual.
