Traditional and indigenous knowledges and perspectives have not often been recognized in climate adaptation planning efforts focused on natural and cultural resources. This training will use the new Tribal Adaptation Menu along with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science Adaptation Workbook to integrate tribal and traditional values with climate adaptation planning processes. This active, hands-on workshop will help participants consider climate change and develop custom-built adaptation actions into their own real-world projects.

Workshop Goals:

  • Identify priorities and set goals for tribal natural resources management.
  • Develop actions to help adapt natural resources to changing conditions.
  • Incorporate cultural uses and relationships into adaptation actions.
  • Develop plans to engage and consult tribal community members in adaptation decisions

Cost: Free! (Includes lunch and refreshments)
