An overview of key online platform, affiliated websites and tools from across the partnership

Nature Protects People Learning Platform

This platform provides guides and tools based on The Blue Guide for Coastal Resilience. This Guide enables disaster risk reduction practitioners to learn about how Nature-based Solutions (NbS) can protect people and property specifically in coastal areas. NbS in coastal areas involves harnessing the power of ecosystems, such as reefs and mangroves to reduce the impacts of climate hazards such as storms and coastal flooding. This platform also supports users to learn how to integrate coastal NbS into disaster planning to reduce risks in coastal areas.

Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Community or Practice

The formation of the Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Community of Practice (RMEL CoP) in 2016, created a remarkable opportunity. Collaboratively engaging 250+ resilience thinkers, researchers, evaluators, and practitioners from government, academia, civil society, and business, the RMEL CoP has provided unique multi-disciplinary and cross-sector spaces to learn together, and to inform, speed up, and scale-out the practice of resilience.


weADAPT is an online 'open space' on climate adaptation issues (including the synergies between adaptation and mitigation) which allows practitioners, researchers and policy makers to access credible, high quality information and to share experiences and lessons learnt with the weADAPT community. It is designed to facilitate learning, exchange, collaboration and knowledge integration to build a professional community of research and practice on adaptation issues while developing policy-relevant tools and guidance for adaptation planning and decision-making.

InsuResilience Knowledge Hub

The Knowledge Hub of the InsuResilience Global Partnership. Here you can find various materials surrounding the topic of climate change and disaster risk reduction.

CDKN Resources

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) works to enhance the quality of life for the poorest and most vulnerable to climate change. CDKN supports decision-makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development. It does this by combining knowledge, research and technical advisory in support of locally owned and managed policy processes. CDKN works in partnership with decision-makers in the public, private and non-governmental sectors nationally, regionally and globally.


PreventionWeb is a collaborative knowledge sharing platform on disaster risk reduction (DRR), managed by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). The site offers a range of knowledge products and services to facilitate the work of DRR professionals. PreventionWeb features content that helps DRR stakeholders better understand disaster risk and learn from the implementation of DRR strategies, policies and measures.

Resilience Platform

The Resilience Platform is a collaborative online space to capture, access, co-create and advance the latest resilience knowledge. Have a look at the solutions, stories, people & initiative profiles as well as the latest evidence and tools. Sign up or login to start sharing your own resilience knowledge!


Wayfinder is a process guide for resilience assessment, planning and action in social-ecological systems. It represents the frontier in resilience and sustainability science, synthesized into a clear, coherent and hands-on approach. Encouraging a new generation of resilience practice, Wayfinder will help development practitioners, project teams, policymakers and other changemakers navigate towards sustainable, safe and just futures.

PLACARD Connectivity Hub

PLACARD Connectivity Hub, a new research and discovery tool that helps users find relevant knowledge and organizations working on climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) issues. The Connectivity Hub aims to be a testbed for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning techniques to produce new, policy-relevant insights. The Hub is designed to help planners, decision-makers, researchers, policymakers, students, and interested citizens who are trying to find information, organisations and people relevant to their work in CCA and DRR.

NAZCA Global Climate Action portal

The Global Climate Action portal is an online platform where actors from around the globe – countries, regions, cities, companies, investors and other organizations – can display their commitments to act on climate change. Launched by UN Climate Change, Peru and France in 2014, the portal was born of the realization that addressing climate change will take ambitious, broad-based action from all segments of society, public and private. Crucially, it helped build momentum towards the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement 2015.
