Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP)



The Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP) is an international partnership of the world's leading climate and adaptation experts. We provide a broad range of climate-related services to both government and commercial clients including:
• Consultancy
• Knowledge Services / Management
• Training.

GCAP's distinctive approach is one which combines in-depth knowledge and access relevant climate data with strong operational and planning insight to meet the needs of clients.  GCAP is developing an expanding network of offices and affilieates for its Adaptation Academy, to implement knowledge management services and to provide adaptation consultancies.  GCAP is building capacity where demand for services is needed: in host organisations, vulnerable regions and among the distributed community of practice.

Action pledges:
GCAP is carrying on the work developed with the Oxford office of the Stockholm Environment Institute, notably on the economics of adaptation, developing practicable assessment methods and understanding the socio-institutional landscape of adaptation.
