Welcome to the new look and features of weADAPT and our microsites! Please send feedback to info@weADAPT.org.



The Adaptation at Altitude programme is improving the availability and use of mountain observation data, facilitating science-policy dialogues, supporting a community of practice and knowledge exchange on adaptation solutions, and influencing policy processes.

As part of our focus on supporting knowledge exchange we have created the open CCA in Mountains community space on weADAPT. All are welcome to join this community and share their work with others. Find out how to share and highlight your work (and what work you can share) here.

Find the latest outputs from Adaptation at Altitude and the wider CCA in mountains community below.
