This course is a collaboration between ITEP, the Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe, the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center, and the American Indian Higher Education Consortium. This is a week-long virtual course, running for approximately 4 hours (breaks included) each day from August 9th-13th. This course introduces planning for climate change impacts, with examples of how tribes have approached the adaptation planning process. The course is intended for tribal environmental and natural resource professionals who expect to be involved in climate change adaptation planning. Since the course will focus on climate change impacts in the West, we especially encourage tribal environmental staff from this region to attend. Others are welcome to attend but should realize that the content will focus on the West.
