Global Climate Adaptation Partnership

Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP) is an international partnership of the world's leading climate and adaptation experts. It provides a broad range of climate-related services to both government and commercial clients. As the world of climate change matures, businesses and governments are increasingly engaging in efforts to determine sound climate adaptation solutions. These solutions are complex. They are set in a context of tough environmental standards and low carbon targets and involve a wide range of processes: transformations in risk, deployment of early warning and response systems, achieving multi-stakeholder ownership and securing sustainable finance.

The Partnership represents a powerful new force in the field of climate adaptation, providing a wide spectrum of solutions. Its distinctive approach is one which combines in-depth knowledge and access to vast amounts of climate data with strong operational and planning insight. Using this core method, GCAP develops solutions through an expanding network of offices located in regions where adaptation services are most in demand.
