The Union of Concerned Scientists has developed the attached climate resilience framework and set of 15 adaptation principles for use by decision makers, practitioners, and citizens engaged in adaptation work. The climate resilience framework describes how climate adaptation and mitigation are intrinsically linked and how, together, they create resilience. The adaptation principles are grounded in science and committed to equity. Together, the framework and principles are meant to be durable and flexible enough to be used in a wide variety of contexts. UCS will update these periodically, as practitioners of adaptation learn and share new lessons.
