Effective adaptation to our changing environment requires public, business, academic, and non-profit organizations to communicate and collaborate to make decisions for the long term.  In practice, it can be confusing to determine how to get the necessary information and expertise to flow across these organizational boundaries. The Partnership for Resilience will empower society to act by increasing effective communication and collaboration among Partners and stimulating adaptation and mitigation activity investments across all sectors. 

Collaborate with Partners to identify and take action on key threats and opportunities posed by our changing environment.

Take a leadership role in developing the emerging interdisciplinary field combining science, environmental analytics, and business.
