Climate Change:

Climate Change

The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals established its Climate Change Program in 2009 to provide support and be responsive to the needs of tribes that are preparing for and currently contending with climate change impacts. The development of the program has been guided by a steering committee that includes tribal environmental and natural resource professionals who are actively working on climate change issues.

This program offers training, technical assistance, informational resources, and tools to build capacity of tribes to address climate change impacts. Follow the links to the left to find the training schedule, upcoming and archived webinars, archived newsletters, and to sign up for the Climate Change Email Listserv.

Also please visit ITEP’s Tribes & Climate Change website, which is a go-to resource tailored to helping Native peoples gain a better understanding of climate change impacts and adaptation. The website includes basic information about climate change, Tribal Profiles (case studies), Funding Opportunities, the Tribal Climate Change Adaptation Planning Toolkit, Climate Change Fact Sheets, ITEP Reports, and Upcoming Events.
