Nisha commented on Adaptation Atlas

The Adaptation Atlas project puts valuable, tried and tested, information in the hands of the public and decision makers who need such information (and ideas) to take the next step of adapting and responding to the current and future impacts of climate change. There ARE successful adaptation programs/projects out there, yet it is hard to find them in one collation; and more importantly, to know what their experiences were so as to improve on them and not necessarily make the same mistakes. The need for such technical knowledge sharing is only going to grow with the recent Paris agreement -- and cities/individual actors/ companies are at the front lines of response. I think that the Atlas is just the start of what we need to see for concrete adaptation action: inspiration, concrete ideas, translation into reality, and sharing of the process.
