Tribal Climate Adaptation

June 4, 2013 - 3:30pm - 5:00pmRegistration Closed
 This webinar will examine a variety of approaches being undertaken and results of climate change adaptation planning among Native Communities. As impacts of climate change proceed, the ways people adapt across landscapes must reflect unique opportunities and challenges of the locations inhabited. Native Communities cognizant of the changes occurring around them can lead the way in showing how adaptation should be managed in Tribal localities. Resources at risk, resources available to address the risks, and the urgency needed to avoid the risks all vary widely across Tribal lands. The intention of this webinar is to provide examples and inspire further innovation regarding how adaptation is being addressed and accomplished in light of EPA initiatives and guidance. The key messages from the National Climate Assessment chapter on Impacts of Climate Change on Tribal, Indigenous, and Native Lands and Resources will also be discussed.
 Moderator: Danny Gogal, US EPA, Office of Environmental Justice
