2-4 April 2013 ~ Denver, CO

You are invited to be a part of the *1st National Adaptation Forum 
(NAF): /Action today for a better tomorrow/*. Please join us as we 
kick-off the inaugural convening of adaptation practitioners and experts 
from around the country focused on moving from adaptation planning to 
adaptation action.

Goals of the NAF:

  * Provide a professional development opportunity for the adaptation
  * Contribute to the development of a community of practice around
    climate change adaptation.
  * Create a venue for practitioners to share information, progress, and
    strategies, in order to build the capacity of their community.
  * Supporting on the ground implementation by providing managers and
    regional experts with a venue to exchange knowledge of and tools for
    incorporating climate change into their work.

This professional development event affords attendees the opportunity to 
learn more about how to make their work climate smart, share what they 
have learned with others, and develop a stronger network to be climate 
savvy in all that they do.
