Adaptation Ledger™ was created to address a significant void. Currently, there is no integrated, coordinated, and highly responsive platform with a design that creates clear incentives for developing standards (defined broadly) for climate adaptation to organize the essential tools (technologies, practice, metrics, exchange mechanisms and finance, in other words, “climate services”) required to support effective global action on climate adaptation.
We believe that the standard view of climate services must evolve beyond improved climate projections, vulnerability assessments and adaptation designs and planning. The most critical climate service challenges lie in creating a dynamic but integrated system for investment and transactions that brings in the whole set of players from public, private, and third sectors. Such integrated climate services will facilitate the engagement of institutions and communities as active participants in a dynamic, hard-nosed set of investments that serve the interests of communities better, realizing where necessary the shorter term priorities for longer term challenges.
In short, Adaptation Ledger seeks to synergize standards, blockchain and a unified metric in an integrated platform for the applied creation of a suite of tools and testbeds to better align adaptation solutions and mobilize adaptation finance. Our breakthrough is to better align adaptation solutions and usher in a new era of coordinated adaptation action.
Adaptation Ledger™ is a unique combination of expertise, tools and idea collaboration that aims to make adaptation work better. We tap world-leading professionals in the sustainability, adaptation, standards and climate fields and associate with the institutions that have the financial, intellectual, and human resources to move faster and scale globally.

Apart from Adaptation Ledger's core services, Adaptation Ledger, through its principals and extended team of subject area thought leaders, provides research insights and advice to corporations, investors, banking institutions, multilateral organizations, NGOs, and all levels of government in the following areas for climate adaptation:
Blockchain Innovations: Distributed Ledger Alternative Functions and Platforms, Tokenization and Smart Contracts
Integrations of Blockchain: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Platforms, Big Data Analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT)
Governance Innovations: Blockchain Policy - Governance – Regulation - Law
Adaptation Standards and Metrics: Vulnerability Reduction Credits (VRCs), Smart Standards, Adaptation Indicators, Monitoring and Evaluation
Strategic Insights: Strategy Development, Scenario Planning, and Futures Literacy
Adaptation Ledger is uniquely qualified not only in each of these usually distinct areas, but also in the interaction already occurring across these topics. It is the synergy occurring across these topics that is the key to understanding NextGen Adaptation.
Adaptation Ledger was created to lead development of NextGen applications and pilot projects that effectively mobilize investment, standards, and best practice for climate adaptation.
The principals of Adaptation Ledger have each led relevant initiatives at the national and international levels, including through The Higher Ground Initiative’s Vulnerability Reduction Credit™, Collaborase, Climate Chain Coalition, and have each made significant contributions to the emerging digital and governance innovations within the climate change and sustainability landscape.
