A decade of adaptation goodness (and a contest!)


This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Buying Time: A User’s Manual to Building Resistance and Resilience to Climate Change in Natural Systems. A first-of-its-kind resource for the adaptation-inclined, it offers tips focused on natural systems but applicable to adaptation of any type. It continues to be widely cited despite the wave of new publications that have followed. Clearly a modern classic!


In honor of the 10th Anniversary, we’ve opened the archive and are offering 3 original bound copies, plus 25 CD copies (a collector's item just for the format!). Yes, these are the same as those distributed at the World Parks Congress in Durban, South Africa in 2003! Nelson Mandela was in town for the event (the Congress, not the book release). For your chance to get a copy, here’s all you need to do:

1.     Visit the Climate Adaptation Knowledge Exchange, then
2.     Log in to your account (If you are not a registered user, become one!) then
3.     Complete your profile to include your bio and photo!
 
Send an email to info@cakex.org when you’ve completed this set of tasks and winners will be selected at random once 28 entries have been received. Winners are limited to entries from the United States and Canada owing to the cost of postage.

If you want something more up to date as well, check out Climate Savvy, the 2010 follow up publication.
