The Adaptation Coalition Toolkit: Building Community Resilience to Climate Change
Adaptation Coalitions are groups of individuals/ organizations that form alliances around climate change issues in order to achieve shared desired futures that a community is willing to plan for. To do this the Adaptation Coalition Toolkit follows four steps. 1) Exchanges knowledge between local and non-local actors on climate change. 2) Trains local adaptation teams to gather information on vulnerability and external alliances. 3) Feeds this information back to the community and helps them begin adaptation planning and 4) Builds coalitions between communities, external partners and resources.
