The Adaptation Sciences (AdSci) Program
Beginning in FY 2021, NOAA’s CSI Division will support a new research portfolio: The Adaptation Sciences (AdSci) Program.
In response to rapidly increasing demand for methods to advance climate adaptation and resilience strategies, and leverage NOAA sciences and services, CSI is launching a new Adaptation Science (AdSci) research program. The AdSci Program will help advance the knowledge, methods and frameworks needed to move society beyond incremental adaptation toward more widespread, connected, adaptive pathways, and resilience strategies with clear economic and societal co-benefits. Research will focus on the integration of acute and chronic stressors that occur over multiple timescales. NOAA Research, in the context of its commitment to improved service development, delivery, and integrated information services through innovative science, is well placed to advance science in support of adaptation.
