Federal Adaptation and Resilience Group
USGCRP’s Federal Adaptation and Resilience Group (FARG) provides a forum for members to learn and collaborate across agencies on climate adaptation and resilience. FARG is the latest incarnation of USGCRP efforts to address the interface of global change science and adaptation/resilience. Going back as far as 2010, USGCRP has addressed this topic through interagency working groups and initiatives.
The FARG has a wide range of members, with close to 20 agencies and many more departments and bureaus represented. The group meets quarterly and in addition holds webinars, focus group discussions, and workshops. Current focal areas include the following:
- Economics of Adaptation
- Climate-resilient Infrastructure
- Adaptation and Natural Resource Management
- Information for Decision Making
- Resilience Dialogues, a public-private collaboration that works to build climate-resilient communities through facilitated online dialogues among scientists, practitioners, and community leaders
