Building Resilience Today Training Series

The goal of the Looking Forward, Looking Back: Building Resilience Today workshop was to provide Alaska Tribal communities who are experiencing climate change with the information, support, and climate science to plan and adapt for uncertain futures.

The workshop was hosted by AK CASC and the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association. Five Tribes participated in two trainings and held local workshops that aimed to help these partnering communities craft sections of a climate adaptation plan.
