Completed Indigenous communities


The resilience of Indigenous communities has been illustrated through the ability to adapt to environmental changes throughout time. Today, Indigenous communities are experiencing unprecedented environmental changes, that are threatening their very health and well-being. Developing innovative methods to identify and adapt to such rapid changes has never been more important.

The communication, creation and exchange of information and knowledge are critical to the ability and success of Indigenous communities to effectively adapt to climate change and remain resilient in the face of such change. This project will establish a network to identify, enhance, and transfer adaptive capacity between North American Indigenous communities.
