This free webinar is being hosted by the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) Climate Change Program and is an installment of the Topics in Climate Change Adaptation Planning webinar series.

ITEP is pleased to continue working with the Desert Research Institute and Ohio University on this series of webinars focused on the significance of conducting vulnerability assessments on Tribal/Indigenous lands and resources. Conducting a vulnerability assessment within an adaptation/mitigation plan to address climate change impacts and building tribal resilience is a key process that interests many natural resource and environmental staff working with and for tribes/Indigenous peoples across the country. This is the third webinar that will continue to provide in-depth overview of vulnerability assessment concepts and how resource managers can use these assessments within their respective and unique communities. We are pleased that our friend and colleague, Mike Durglo, Jr. will be joining us to share his experience and ongoing work on his tribe’s adaptation plan. Please join us!
