In collaboration with the Native Nations Institute (NNI) of the University of Arizona’s Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, in 2018, NNCAP and the DOI Southwest Climate Science Center will host a meeting for adaptation practitioners who specialize in tribal climate adaptation. The meeting will focus on regional capacity-building, sharing tools and experience, and building a framework for hands-on support of adaptation planning and implementation. The goal of the meeting is to share experiences, build capacity, promote collaboration and share best practices among several groups engaged in supporting climate change adaptation planning for tribes. The meeting will develop a framework for climate practitioners on facilitating development and implementation of tribal climate adaptation plans. It will build on lessons learned from the Tribal Leaders’ Adaptation Summit, our collective experience in working with the Tohono O’odham Nation, Pyramid Lake Paiute, Gila River Indian Community, and Fort McDowell Yavapai Tribal Nations on adaptation planning, as well as the experience and knowledge of tribal adaptation experts from across the country who have worked directly with tribes on adaptation issues.
