Welcome to the Youth Adaptation Network (YAN) of the Global Center on Adaptation.

Young people worldwide are leading the way demanding climate action. Whether campaigning on the streets, advocating in their places of study, or directly lobbying politicians and businesses, they are fighting for their futures. At the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA), our mission is to act as a solutions broker to accelerate, innovate and scale adaptation action for a climate resilient world. We believe that young people have a crucial role to play in developing and implementing solutions related to climate change adaptation.

The aim of the Youth Adaptation Network (YAN) is to provide a platform for its members to access adaptation knowledge and campaigning materials, offer opportunities to implement adaptation action on the ground, and connect them with the leaders at the forefront of the global response to climate change.
