The University of Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership (MCAP) offers critical resources and training to help communities respond to changing climate conditions and prepare for the years to come. We provide climate services to build resiliency across the Midwest— for today and for tomorrow.

Affiliated with both University of Minnesota Extension and the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, MCAP performs foundational climate research while also offering hands-on support to individuals and organizations across a range of backgrounds and industries in Minnesota, the Midwest region and beyond. Our staff are based across the state with expertise in climate science, agriculture, forestry, water resources, public health, tribal natural resource management and more.
