Are you concerned about what climate change might mean for your tribe? The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC), in partnership with the Climate Impacts Group (CIG), is hosting a webinar on Thursday, November 15th at 11:00 AM (PT) to introduce the Climate Impacts Group’s new Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources. This new suite of resources was designed to support Northwest and Great Basin tribes’ efforts to assess climate risks to natural and cultural resources.
In this webinar, Dr. Meade Krosby, Senior Scientist at the Climate Impacts Group and University Deputy Director of the NW CASC, will first introduce the Tribal Climate Tool, which provides interactive maps, graphs and reports summarizing projected changes in climate for the unique geographies and impacts of concern to Northwest and Great Basin tribes. This webinar will also introduce the Tribal Climate Vulnerability Resources webpage, developed to orient users to the range of vulnerability assessment approaches and resources available to tribes. Finally, Dr. Krosby will describe the services provided by the Tribal Climate Technical Support Desk, which offers rapid response to tribal queries about the vulnerability assessment process.
The University of Washington Climate Impacts Group, in close collaboration with tribal partners, developed the Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources through the NW CASC and GBLCC-funded project “Building Tribal Capacity to Assess Vulnerability to Climate Change.”
