The Consortium for Capacity Building is an educational, outreach, and networking organization at CU-Boulder. We focus on enhancing the value and use of climate, water, and weather information for the betterment of societies and the wellbeing of individuals.
CCB works in both developed and developing countries to help the most vulnerable societies and populations mitigate and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate. Consortium partners are individuals and institutions working globally on capacity building in water, climate, and society issues.
The Consortium for Capacity Building was established in 1974 as the pioneering Environmental and Societal Impacts Group (ESIG) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. We relocated to the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2008 after receiving support from the Rockefeller Foundation and becoming a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment.
