CivicWell California Adaptation Forum

July 31, 2023 - August 2, 2023

The biennial California Adaptation Forum (CAF) aims to gather California’s adaptation community to foster knowledge exchange, innovation, and mutual support to accelerate adaptation efforts and create equitable and resilient communities throughout the state. CAF’s diverse audience includes local, regional, state, and federal agencies, community-based organizations and nonprofits, Tribal Nations and Native-led organizations, academic institutions and researchers, technical experts, private sector leaders, students, and other leaders working in and across a broad range of climate issue areas.

By attending the Forum, you will have the opportunity to hear directly from community leaders, decision-makers, and technical experts on emerging trends and recent developments facing the adaptation field while learning about tangible approaches and strategies to put new knowledge to use. In addition to the cutting-edge projects, research, strategies, tools, and resources showcased and discussed in the sessions, the opportunities to network are invaluable — so much so that for some attendees, this is the primary reason they attend the Forum. Participants will leave feeling inspired and equipped to take their work to the next level, leveraging new connections and information gained to help safeguard the state of California.
