Register for the upcoming virtual National Adaptation Forum Tribal & Indigenous Climate Adaptation Series
EcoAdapt is excited to present the virtual National Adaptation Forum Tribal & Indigenous Climate Adaptation Series.
This is a four-part series focused on advancing discussions about climate adaptation in Tribal and Indigenous communities, highlighting promising adaptation practices, and showcasing the diversity of approaches to climate adaptation. The series will interest not only Tribal and Indigenous professionals, but also their neighbors, allies, and other adaptation professionals interested in innovative approaches.
This series will touch on themes including Tribal climate and health, community-led adaptation, and Indigenous sustainability practices. The sessions will be diverse in format and will include panels, individual speakers, and a documentary film. Mark your calendars for October 27, November 10, November 17, and December 1 from 11 am to 12:30 pm PT / 2 pm - 3:30 pm ET.
This series would have not been possible without the support of our Tribal & Indigenous Climate Adaptation Steering Committee.
Make sure to register now to receive information on session speakers as soon as it's available!

This session will share promising approaches, lessons learned, tools, and resources developed by Pala's federally funded Tribal Climate Health Project (TCHP). In the last five years, this program has worked to strength U.S. Tribal capacity to assess and prepare for the health and other impacts of climate change through trainings, peer knowledge exchange, tools, nation-wide partnerships, data development, research, and direct assistance. This session will highlight the latest information on the health impacts of climate-induced wildfire, drought, heat, storms, and flooding on Tribes. It will detail how Pala has used its own adaptation experiences to inform the TCHP and how the TCHP continually informs Pala's adaptation efforts.

• Shasta Gaughen, Pala Band of Mission Indians, Environmental Director and Tribal Historic Preservation Officer
