Synthesis of tribal climate adaptation in Alaska

The project synthesized tribal climate adaptation needs assessments, workshop reports, and adaptation plans in Alaska to:

  • document barriers to climate adaptation planning
  • understand the current level of support for climate adaptation planning,
  • examine the extent that climate science and traditional knowledge are being used in tribal climate adaptation plans
  • identify climate science needs related to climate adaptation planning among Alaska Native tribes

This work was designed to inform the Bureau of Indian Affairs tribal climate science liaison for Alaska.
