Tribal Climate and Health Adaptation Summit

Tribes across the US are very attuned to the cascading and interconnected impacts of climate change on their lands and health, from changing water patterns to more intense and frequent wildfires. As costs continue to stack up in dollars, lives, damage to cultural and natural resources, and other losses, the urgency to prepare for these impacts is greater than ever. These heartbreaking losses are affecting the wellbeing of Tribal citizens, and also weighing heavily on the overwhelmed professionals responsible for protecting them. The first step in protecting Tribal health and wellbeing from the impacts of climate change is often to conduct a vulnerability assessment to identify the community’s biggest risks and concerns. However, this step can be a big obstacle for under-resourced communities, particularly given the time-consuming nature of fact-finding and community engagement. Those who have assessed their vulnerability may not have had the resources to look deeper into vulnerabilities associated with health and wellbeing. [Information]
