Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP)


The earth’s climate is changing and will continue to change for decades regardless of greenhouse gas emissions controls. Across the world, response is typically divided into two interlinked components: mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation describes the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimise the changes ahead. Adaptation, on the other hand, is used to describe the fact that further climate change is inevitable and mankind would do well to prepare now for the climate of the future.

Adaptation in its broadest sense is the primary focus of GCAP because in practice most organisations (both public and private) need support to implement appropriate adaptation solutions to minimise the negative impacts of adverse impacts of changing climate.

Our mission is "to passionately provide our clients with expert insight into the effects of climate change on their citizens, on their environments, and on their businesses; and to assist our clients in taking proactive steps to develop sustainable and best-value adaptation solutions to their unique climate change challenges."
