Our Team

PlanAdapt is a transdisciplinary team of highly committed and passionate climate resilience and climate risk specialists across the globe. We cover a range of disciplines and backgrounds. Our team is specialised in building capacities and skills of stakeholders and partners, analysing and advising on policies and methodologies to turn knowledge, plans and strategies into impactful action on the ground. We are excited to bring our expertise in agriculture, forestry, water resource management, coastal protection, human development, energy, infrastructure, health, tourism and other areas to the table, while we are keen on growing and learning together with the partners and clients we work with and for.

PlanAdapt's structure and different roles

We are not only researchers, advisors and experts, but also relationship builders, catalysts, facilitators, enablers or co-learners. We consider our collaborators and clients 'partners on the same journey' rather than 'recipients' of services or support.

PlanAdapt's vision of organisational development embodies a new and innovative way of collaborating beyond hierarchical structures and organigrammes while pursuing the principles of an open organisation.  Each person engaged with PlanAdapt makes his or her own choices about the type and the scope of the engagement (see PlanAdapt's structure and the different roles).
