Full Individual Membership: Individuals formalise their membership in their own capacity by signing the online Individual Commitment Form as a pledge to upholding the agreed values, principles and objectives of the Adaptation Network .

Full Organisational Membership: Organisations formalise their membership as an institution by signing the online Organisational Commitment Form as a pledge to upholding the agreed values, principles and objectives   of the Adaptation Network.
Government departments or large institutions, for whom it is not legally feasible to sign a pledge, may instead request the Adaptation Network to commit to a mutual Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
