Tribal Climate Change Project: Issues and Opportunities for Native American tribes in planning for the physical affects of climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions
MetadataShow full item record
The University of Oregon Environmental Studies Program and the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station are engaged in a collaborative study focused on understanding tribal climate change initiatives around the United States. The study will result in knowledge transfer through the dissemination of presentations, resources and publications to assist tribes throughout the United States in addressing climate change. Through this study, we also hope to build awareness among non-tribal communities, organizations, and agencies about issues, challenges, and opportunities that tribes face in the context of climate change.
