weADAPT Knowledge Manager

weADAPT is a collaborative platform on climate adaptation issues. We do our best to support users and work with users to access knowledge, and share their knowledge and experience in a way that supports learning amongst the adaptation community. Occasionally we will also curate knowledge outputs that we think are particularly useful to the community, and address the known needs of our users.

If you want to know more about us, the ways you can engage with weADAPT, how we manage knowledge on weADAPT, and the ways in which we are trying to enhance knowledge managment for the benefit of the entire climate change adaptation community (and the closely related fields of disaster risk reduction and climate services), please get in touch!
