Our Vision: A resilient South Africa for all.
The Adaptation Network was founded in 2009 to establish a creative platform for sharing of experiences, practical approaches and frameworks relating to climate change adaptation.
The Network has members from Civil Society, Government, Parastatals, Academia and Business, and the 2011 Steering Committee comprises; Malusi Vatsha (SANBI); Gabriel Lekalakala (Dept. Agriculture); Sarshen Marais (CAP); Katinka Lund Waagsaether (CSAG); Sylvester Mpandeli (Dept. Environmental Affairs); Bettina Koelle (Indigo development and change); and Sandile Ndawonde (GreenNetwork); and Noel Oettle (EMG).
The Network is hosted by two civil society organisations: Indigo Development & Change and The Environmental Monitoring Group.
Membership is open to all subscribing to the values of the network and working in the field of adaptation. Meetings are held three times a year and a regular newsletter is sent out per email.
