Conservation Planning and Design, Traditional Ecological Knowledge

The University of Oregon Environmental Studies Program (UO ENVS) worked with the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative in support of the Pacific Northwest Tribal Climate Change Project, which is aimed at building an understanding of the impacts that climate change may have on American Indian and Alaska Native tribal culture and sovereignty. This agreement will focus on supporting the Pacific Northwest Tribal Climate Change Project and developing resources that foster partnerships, knowledge exchange and outreach opportunities between tribes, climate scientists and other climate change partners in the region.

This PNW Tribal Climate Change Project is aimed at building an understanding of the needs, lessons learned, and opportunities that American Indian and Alaska Native tribes have in planning for the effects of climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Through this effort, knowledge, tools and skills to help tribes address climate change are shared through presentations, publications and other resources. This project will continue to build awareness among non-tribal communities, organizations, research institutions and agencies about issues, challenges, and opportunities that tribes face in the context of climate change.
