The Second Resilience Ecosystem Workshop (REW2) convened roughly 100 adaptation and resilience professionals in a series of four online meetings in Spring 2020. This was the second REW sponsored by the NOAA Climate Program Office and Climate Resilience Fund (the first was held in person at NOAA headquarters in 2018). This year the U.S. Global Change Research Program joined as a third co-sponsor. Organizers of REW2 included representatives from the U.S. federal government as well as the private and non-profit sectors. More information about the workshop, including links to workshop slide decks and activities and a theory of change, can be found by visiting the workshop's webpage.
Many REW2 participants have begun to collaborate on synergistic projects. Some of these may receive funding through the Coordination and Collaboration in the Resilience Ecosystem (CCRE) grants competition, which commenced in June 2020. CCRE is a partnership between the Climate Resilience Fund, the NOAA Climate Program Office, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday, July 17, 2020.
