The ARA is a coalition representing the global adaptation community. Together, we are committed to Adaptation Research for Impact that supports climate resilient futures.
Our members are researchers, funders, policymakers, development bodies, and community-based organisations. We encourage collaboration and knowledge exchange among these members and support their access to investment and opportunities for action-oriented research for adaptation.
Benefits of membership

Members share new practices for supporting and implementing action-oriented research for adaptation as part of a peer-to-peer learning environment where research is ‘user-friendly’ and actionable for local actors.

Members jointly advocate for shifts in policy, finance flows, and improved standards of action and research to enable effective adaptation to climate change
