The campus community is invited to register for the Hazard and Climate Resilience Institute’s final event of the ‘Resilience Needs & Actions’ panel focused tribal perspectives on resilience and climate change in the Intermountain West from 11 a.m. to noon on Thursday, May 19, 2022. The format is a facilitated panel discussion with an interactive question and answer session.
Landscapes and ecosystems are changing due to a combination of human modifications and climate change. Tribes, who have lived in the Intermountain West for millennia, have observed and documented changes that include decreasing fish and wildlife numbers and availability of traditional foods. As a result, they are working to enact policies and programs to protect and restore these ecosystems. In this panel, representatives from tribes across the Intermountain West will discuss what actions their respective tribes are focused on and their perspectives on climate change in the Intermountain West.
Co-facilitated with: Scott Hauser, director of the Upper Snake River Tribes Foundation.
