A groundbreaking document, The Status of Tribes and Climate Change Report was deliberately created to honor the resilience of Tribes across the country as they face increasing climate impacts. To develop this document, the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals Tribes and Climate Change Team convened a group of more than 90 authors, including those from Tribal Nations, federal agencies, Tribal organizations, academic institutions, and non-profits. Each chapter of the report is preceded by narratives that feature Tribal representatives who speak about the climate impacts their communities are confronting and describe the actions they are taking to address the effects of climate change on their lands and culture. In this webinar, Nikki Cooley will provide an overview of the report, making sure to focus on portions that are especially relevant to Tribal nations and communities of the Northeast.
