weADAPT.org is an online ‘open space’ on climate adaptation issues (including the synergies between adaptation and mitigation) which allows practitioners, researchers and policy makers to access credible, high quality information and to share experiences and lessons learnt with the weADAPT community. It is designed to facilitate learning, exchange, collaboration and knowledge integration to build a professional community of research and practice on adaptation issues while developing policy-relevant tools and guidance for adaptation planning and decision-making.
weADAPT is your platform for publishing, sharing and discovering new work around climate change adaptation. Through weADAPT you can gain exposure for your work and that of your organisation, discover other people working in your area and access the latest research on adaptation. You can share knowledge, find research, browse the knowledge base or use the Adaptation Layer. weADAPT will also suggest articles based on your interests, and when you join an initiative weADAPT will identify other members you might like to connect with who have similar interests.
weADAPT.org includes innovative new tools for knowledge integration:
- find out ‘who is doing what and where’ with our Adaptation Layer - an interface showing existing adaptation projects on Google Earth
- the climate adaptation Knowledge Base where you will find articles on current and emerging areas of research,
- customized user and organisation profiles and
- adaptation decision support tools such as the prototype Climate Adaptation Options Explorer (ADx)
Create content to share with other researchers and practitioners in the weADAPT climate adaptation network and access all relevant information in one place, including reports, articles, Google Earth case studies, relevant organisations and information about other adaptation professionals. Find out about sharing.
weADAPT links you with other climate adaptation professionals, who share similar interests to you, based on your profile description and the work you publish, helping you find and connect to people doing similar things. The Adaptation Layer also allows you to view projects operating in similar fields or in your geographic area, allowing you to connect and collaborate.
weADAPT is designed to bring information to you in an intelligent and personalized way. Going beyond knowledge sharing, weADAPT’s semantic platform not only makes our collective knowledge linked and integrated in meaningful ways but is also responsive to your needs and interests. weADAPT can identify new connections and possible collaborations by linking you with people interested in similar things.
