The 2012 World Economic Forum ranked "the failure to adapt as one of the highest global risks and on a par with terrorism."

Why TRI?

There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that warming of Earth’s climate system is unequivocal. Even if humanity manages to avert the worst possible scenario, we are still facing unprecedented warming and costly natural disasters. This is reason enough to manage the risks, build our resilience and increase our knowledge about how to adapt.

Fast-tracking our knowledge about adaptation and resilience building is essential. We are teetering on environmental and social tipping points that could have unintended consequences, the more prepared we are – the better chance we’ll have at being able to adapt to change.

TRI brings knowledge and good practices from Indigenous and scientific perspectives around the world to inspire creative and innovative responses to climate change.
