Building regional climate resilience requires increased cross-sectoral collaboration, regional coordination, diverse adaptation approaches, locally relevant and useful climate information, and targeted investments in education and capacity building. The Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership (MCAP) is dedicated to meeting these needs through a unique collaboration between university, public, non-profit, and private sector groups organized to support Minnesota’s ability to adapt to a changing climate. MCAP is the only multi-sector, statewide group working on climate adaptation and we are actively looking for partners and opportunities to collaborate and help the state, and Midwest region, respond to and prepare for a changing climate. This talk will provide an overview of the work of MCAP and our planned growth and research priorities, including the development of high-resolution downscaled climate projection data for the state of Minnesota.
