Getting Started

According to the IPCC 2018 report, over the next 40 years the world will very likely experience at least 1.5°C temperature rise. This will in turn produce negative consequences for humans and wildlife alike. Communities worldwide will need to adapt to rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather events, increasing intensity of wildfires and droughts, loss of biodiversity, and other consequences. This challenge therefore calls for community adaptation and resilience plans to face climate crisis over the next century.
