Climate Science Alliance: A Model for Community-Led Climate Adaptation

In this report, we present our model as an actionable framework that advances the implementation of community-led transformational climate adaptation.


The Climate Science Alliance originally achieved smaller, sector-specific goals through three distinct working groups. As we have expanded the climate conversation, we have been able to embed all core focus areas into each one of our boundary-spanning projects.
