The ADAPTool was developed by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), Adaptive Resource Management Ltd and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) with financial and in-kind support from the International Development Research Centre, Natural Resources Canada's Prairie Regional Adaptation Collaborative, Manitoba Conservation, Manitoba Agriculture and Rural Initiatives, and the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority. The ADAPTool is based on the 2009 book, Creating Adaptive Policies: A Guide for Policy-making in an Uncertain World.
