The Network is open to tribes, tribal organizations, agencies, and other interested individuals, and it meets monthly through Zoom. The goals of the network are to (1) identify existing tribal climate change efforts being undertaken in Arizona, California, Colorado, Louisiana Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah; (2) assist Native Nations in identifying and building capacity for adaptation and in identifying climate-related sources of risk and opportunity; (3) coordinate the efforts of climate/environment researchers and practitioners; and, (4) strengthen collaborative networks and relationships between researchers, tribal members and other potential partners. Additional project activities will be identified as the project progresses.
