Adaptation Week

Join us for Adaptation Week
Advancing a Resilient Recovery

November 30 - December 4, 2020


2020 changed everything.

The COVID-19 pandemic has tragically exposed how vulnerable we are. Along with our health and economy, the climate crisis is here now and affecting everyone. These crises are interconnected, and our solutions must be too.

We Need a Resilient Recovery


Held from November 30 – December 4, Adaptation Week is a virtual campaign that brings people together to highlight the urgency of climate adaptation and a resilient recovery. This campaign is in support of the Global Commission on Adaptation and serves as stepping stone to the Climate Adaptation Summit and COP26 in 2021.

Join us throughout the week on social media and at our events. Learn more below.
