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.

In North America, the cost of denying climate change for so long has resulted in huge gaps in knowledge and therefore risks to our economy,health, and cultures Now, more than ever, there is need for climate education and clear pathways that will help stakeholders take action and prepare for change.

TRI will help bring knowledge and good practices from around to inspire creative and innovative responses to climate change.
