New project: Climate Adaptation Knowledge Exchange
Article Type: News From: International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management, Volume 3, Issue 3
Climate Adaptation Knowledge Exchange (CAKE) is a joint project of Island Press and EcoAdapt. It is aimed at building a shared online knowledge base for managing natural systems in the face of rapid climate change. CAKE brings together EcoAdapt’s leadership in developing the concepts and practices of climate adaptation with Island Press’s 27 years as a key publisher of solutions-based environmental information to offer the most valuable, up-to-date and authoritative materials on the subject. It is intended to help build an innovative community of practice and enable users to move beyond books, papers and articles by: vetting and clearly organising online the best information available; building a community via an interactive online platform; creating a directory of practitioners to share knowledge and strategies; and identifying and explaining data tools and information available from other sites.
