Meeting Objective

NOAA Climate Adaptation Partnerships (CAP) formerly Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program is an applied research and engagement program that expands society’s regional capacity to adapt to climate impacts in the U.S. The CAP/RISA program supports sustained, collaborative relationships that help communities build lasting and equitable climate resilience. CAP/RISA teams engage in a variety of applied and co-developed research and engagement with communities. A central tenet of the CAP/RISA program is that learning about climate adaptation and resilience is facilitated by and sustained across a wide range of experts, practitioners, and the public. Learning about and doing adaptation happens within social contexts. As such, the CAP/RISA program supports networks of people working together to plan for and adjust to change using science and local knowledge.

  • Share guidance from and facilitate interaction between CAP/RISA teams and federal leadership.

  • Promote interaction across the CAP/RISA network and peer-to-peer learning.

  • Learn about and engage with recent and ongoing frontline community engagement.

  • Characterize and develop a shared understanding of transformational adaptation in the CAP/RISA network.
