DOI Event: Session 2, Part 1: Adaptation and Mitigation
The Department of the Interior (DOI) is pleased to announce listening sessions focused on climate change and Tribal Nations. The Department would like to ensure that the efforts and initiatives it develops to meet these priorities are shaped and designed based on feedback and information from across Indian Country and Alaska Native Villages. These listening sessions will inform DOI-wide and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)-led efforts. We are scheduling the following listening sessions to provide opportunities for sharing and dialogue about these programs and to learn what Tribes see as important opportunities.
Below are some general questions to help you begin to develop responses to share during the session.
- What are your top priorities surrounding climate adaptation, mitigation, and implementation, and what are the science needs to support these priorities?
- Has your Tribal Nation engaged in activities to mitigate greenhouse gases (e.g., renewable energy development, carbon sequestration, etc.) and if not, is there interest?
- Are there best practices related to climate adaptation and mitigation strategies that your Tribe has experienced? What are the barriers to implementing them?

DOI Event: Session 2, Part 2: Relocation, Managed Retreat, and Protect-in-Place Issues in the Lower 48Session 2, Part 2 will focus on the unmet needs of Tribes facing decisions around community relocation, managed retreat, and protection-in-place issues due to climate change in the lower 48/contiguous U.S.
Below are some general questions to help you begin to develop responses to share during the session:
- Is your Tribe dealing with more frequent and severe climate change impacts (e.g., flooding, erosion, sea level rise, drought, etc.) that are likely to require partial or complete infrastructure relocation?
- If so, what are the resources (financial, technical, etc.) needed to assist the process? What are the barriers?

About Climate Data
This tool explains basic climate tools and shows you how you can use climate data in your work.
A short tour introduces basic terms used in climate modeling, including Global Climate Models, downscaling, and Representative & Extended Concentration Pathways.
Use this interactive map to explore temperature and length of growing season data from three different climate scenarios for 2010-2090.

Tribal Planning with SNAP Tools
Accessing Data for your Planning Needs
These useful and easy-to-access tools can be used for building Tribal Adaptation Plans, risk assessments, and other planning purposes. They allow quick and easy access to a variety of climate data that can drive planning processes. Assess permafrost risk in your community, understand the future of precipitation events, or assess expert climate projections of temperature with a few clicks. Then export the data in a number of formats to include in your planning processes, or to present to your community.
Complex Questions require a Collaborative Approach
Many critical questions to Tribal planning processes are more complex than projections of temperature or rainfall. The future of subsistence resources like berries and caribou, or the viability of community gardens require the data in some of these tools, coupled with community expertise or data from other sources. These complex questions .... collaborative conversations... expertise and joint communication....
