The Climate Adaptation Partnerships (CAP) program in the Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) division of the Climate Program Office is an applied research and engagement program that expands society’s regional capacity to adapt to climate impacts in the United States. The CAP program supports sustained, collaborative relationships that help communities build lasting and equitable climate resilience. Funded by 5-year cooperative agreements with NOAA, the work is accomplished by teams of research institutions, nonprofit organizations, and state/local/Tribal governments in multi-state regions. CAP teams engage in a variety of applied and co-developed research and partnerships with communities. A central tenet of the CAP 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 program supports networks of people working together to plan for and adjust to change using science and local knowledge.
