Adaptation Science

SERDP and ESTCP efforts are improving the understanding of how to manage species and ecosystems that will be affected by climate change; studying how to enhance the resistance, resilience, or recovery capacity of natural infrastructure; and developing methods and tools to enhance the resilience of built structures.
