The Adaptation Clearinghouse seeks to advance effective climate, energy, and transportation policies in the United States that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help communities adapt to climate change . The Clearinghouse aims to strenghten the Federal-State partnership and provide information to policymakers, resource managers, academics, and others who are working to help communities adapt to climate change.
The Adaptation Learning Mechanism (ALM) aims to bridge knowledge gaps on climate adaptation and support tools and resources on adaptation practices on the ground and integration of climate change risks and adaptation into development policy, planning and operations. ALM brings relevant knowledge and stakeholders together to exchange information, experiences, and expertise.
AdaptationCommunity.net provides resources, practical country cases and easy-to-read introductions to priority topics regarding climate information and services, vulnerability assessment, monitoring and evaluation, as well as mainstreaming of adaptation and NAPs. A special feature of this platform is the regular webinar series (recordings available), in which practitioners present experiences with adaptation from around the globe.
AfClix is a boundary organisation set up to ensure that climate-related policy decisions for improving food security are made with the best available weather and climate science. It works by bridging identified, country-specific gaps between decision-makers (NGOs and government) and African climate scientists and by improving capacity in Africa. In practical terms, AfClix connects expertise and creates spaces for dialogue via exchange fora and other knowledge-sharing activities.
AfricaAdapt is an independent bilingual network (French/English) focused exclusively on Africa. The Network’s aim is to facilitate the flow of climate change adaptation knowledge for sustainable livelihoods between researchers, policy makers, civil society organisations and communities who are vulnerable to climate variability and change across the continent.
The AfriCAN Climate Portal shares climate change research and good practices to harmonise multilingual, interdisciplinary and pan-continental climate change knowledge. It encourages project developers, researchers, field practitioners, development partners, NGOs, local/national governments and farmers organisations to learn and benefit from Africa's challenges and success stories.
AgroClimate.org is a web-resource of tools and data on climate and crops that can be used to assist with decisions about the management of agricultural systems in the Southeastern U.S. AgroClimate is an interactive website with climate, agriculture, and forestry information that allows users to assess resource management options with respect to their probable outcomes under forecast climate conditions. The resource uses crop simulation models along with historic and forecast climate data to allow decision makers to compare changes in probable outcomes under different climate conditions.
The Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) is a regional programme for managing and applying adaptation knowledge in the region, and supports governments and other organisations working on adaptation, with special emphases on the management of knowledge and capacity building.
APN is a network of member country governments (membership of 22 member countries as of March 2010) that promotes global change research in the region, increases developing country involvement in that research, and strengthens interactions between the science community and policy-makers.
