Adaptation Tracking Collaborative officially launched today

The Adaptation Tracking Collaborative was officially launched today, funded by a Partnership Development Grant from SSHRC. Based out of McGill―with partner institutes at Wageningen University, University of California Los Angeles, and the Universities of Notre Dame & Minnesota―the ATC brings together an interdisciplinary international team of academics, practitioners, and decision makers who are interested in developing conceptual, methodological, and empirical approaches for tracking adaptation across scales. Initial goals include creating an adaptation index version 2.0 that will link into efforts around global adaptation stocktaking and progress tracking. The ATC will work closely with collaborators, including environmental think tanks (IIED, IISD, ICCCAD), boundary organizations (UKCIP), the private sector (Deloitte), and organizations developing environmental indices (EPI, ND-GAIN).
