AdaptNet (ISSN: 1836-2478) is RMIT University Global Cities Research Institute’s Climate Change Adaptation Program network focused on urban climate change adaptation. It is produced in partnership with Nautilus Institute. This decentralized network creates a set of common knowledge and reference points for participants in the network; it offers information, analysis, and methodology to undertake urban climate change adaptive policy research and analysis. AdaptNet highlights best practice and demonstration projects.  It focuses on cities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, but acknowledges the global network of cities.
