Northwest CSC Adopts Tribal Engagement Strategy for 2012-2015


08/30/2013


The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) announces the adoption of the NW CSC Tribal Engagement Strategy for 2012-2015. The purpose of the Strategy is to describe the opportunities for collaboration between the NW CSC and the 52 Native American tribes within its geographic area. Engagement between the NW CSC and Northwest tribes is intended to assist tribes in being better prepared to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change.

Tribal communities throughout the Northwest are especially vulnerable to climate change because of their significant relationship with natural resources, such as fish, wildlife, and vegetation, to sustain their economies and traditional way of life. The NW CSC is committed to collaborating with tribes on all aspects of its Strategic Plan, which focuses on the delivery of executive, science, data management, communication, and education and training services. Tribal engagement is a high priority for all eight Department of the Interior Climate Science Centers and their parent organization, the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center. The NW CSC Tribal Engagement Strategy provides a blueprint for similar efforts across the CSC network.
