How to cover adaptation?

Climate adaptation is not just a story for environmental reporters. The cross-cutting adaptation beat touches on business, politics, infrastructure, recreation, consumer news and more.

Numerous resources are available to explain adaptation, outline pros and cons of particular strategies, or offer case studies, research and sources to help reporters better covering the climate adaptation story.

This guide organizes the most useful of those resources into a catalogue of detailed, annotated lists. We’ve grouped resources into various topical categories, and each resource is also tagged with various subcategories -- whether the source or kind of information, as well as other topical issues it covers -- to allow you to generate additional lists of related resources.

You’ll also find suggested lists of adaptation story angles, brief backgrounders on how some journalists are covering adaptation, and a form to share story ideas and case studies.
