Climate Adaptation Planning in Southeast Alaska

UA partners with NOAA’s Alaska Sea Grant, the Sitka Tribe of Alaska, and the Central Council Tlingit Haida Indian Association to support ongoing adaptation approaches, including the Southeast Alaska Climate Adaptation Planning Summit in September 2016 (Ketchikan). Tribes have learned from each other about overcoming barriers to adaptation, impacts on subsistence and cultural resources, identifying climate adaptation strategies and drafting work plans for short-term adaptations.
