The Climate Resilience Fund mobilizes resources to support resilience and sustainability outcomes in communities across the U.S. and for the natural systems on which they depend. Together with our partners, we aim to expand our collective capacity to create a more adaptive, sustainable, climate-resilient society.
The Climate Resilience Fund (CRF) has partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s (WCS) Climate Adaptation Fund to author a groundbreaking new report that provides practical guidance to funders and natural resource managers for reducing investment risk in the era of climate change.
The report presents a new concept, the continuum of intentionality for funders, which contains three levels: Empower, Require, and Equip.
"This allows funders to evaluate their current capacity for considering climate change in their own work and that of their grantees,” explained John Nordgren, Managing Director of the Climate Resilience Fund. "The guidance meets them where they are by presenting options with varying levels of effort for incorporating climate-science based criteria and provides them with the next steps and necessary tools to increase their level of intentionality.”
