Adaptation Sciences Program (AdSci)
This research was supported by NOAA’s International Research and Applications Project (IRAP), in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF), through the Belmont Forum’s Collaborative Research Action on Climate, Environment and Health (BF/CRA/CEH). Overall, the funding competition provided over $13M to climate and health research via collaboration among 13 funding agencies from 10 countries.
As part of an ongoing partnership in the region focused on the development of climate services for adaptation and resilience, NOAA’s Adaptation Sciences program provided funding to Blue Sky Development Consulting to support experts in the design and implementation of an assessment of the state of climate and health science, priorities, and adaptive capacity in the Caribbean.
