Reflecting Indigenous Perspectives in Climate Adaptation

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.

Workshop Goals

  • Identify priorities and set goals for tribal natural resources management.
  • Evaluate challenges and opportunities to meeting goals under climate change.
  • Develop actions to help adapt natural resources to changing conditions.
  • Develop plans to engage tribal community members in adaptation decisions.

This training is designed for tribal natural resource managers, along with partner organizations and key collaborators. We encourage individuals and small teams to participate and to bring a  project that is relevant to you and your work. 

Example project ideas:

  • Wild rice restoration in a lake
  • Protecting cultural sites from storm damage
  • Planning for future community needs for hunting and gathering

Register before September 27th! 

Note: Workshop will be capped at 30 people. The deadline for registration is September 27, 2019. All participants are encouraged to attend a pre-workshop webinar (tentatively scheduled for October 7, 2019).
