typeTechnical Summary
valueWe will plan and conduct a workshop for tribes in the north central region who are in some stage of climate adaptation planning or implementation. This will be a partnership between Colorado State University and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes who will work with ITEP (Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals) to build on their climate adaptation training. We will co-develop the next iteration (“2.0”) of training to help tribes who need support with their plans and implementing their plans. We have a core planning team of experts who will work together to plan a workshop for the spring of 2019 to be held in the Denver, CO area. We will invite tribal professionals from the EPA Region 8 Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC) with whom the PIs have experience working on climate issues. We anticipate 20-30 participants from the 27 tribes in region 8.
