In support of our program goals, A2C2 has established relationships with a wide variety of partners, including international organizations, state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private businesses, and international researchers.
A central feature of the A2C2 IGERT is the internship experience in policy or management with one of our Adaptation Partners. This internship provides students with direct experience developing and implementing solutions based on their research. More than fifteen Adaptation Partners are participating in the A2C2 IGERT, including
- Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
- Clean Air-Cool Planet
- Sasaki Associates, Inc.
- Stimson Center
- Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention
- ClimateShift (American University School of Communication)
Students may also develop new partnerships based on their interests.
By virtue of its focus on abrupt climate change and global policy, the A2C2 IGERT is inherently international in its approach and perspective. All students will gain an international perspective through the core coursework.
In addition, students will have opportunities to conduct research or internships abroad. The A2C2 IGERT has established partnerships with colleagues in
- The Falkland Islands
- Chilean Patagonia
- Australia & South West Pacific regions
- Denmark & Greenland
