Using Ecosystem Function and Traditional Ecological Knowledge Together to Build Resilience and Adapt to Climate Change in North America

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2015 - 2016

The goal of this project is to share tools that are available to indigenous communities in the three countries, and to pilot new ones, to assess ecosystem vulnerability, and to demonstrate and test the concepts of integrated riparian and/or water catchment management. The people and agencies engaged in this project will gain experience from hands-on application of such tools. This will enable them to expand this application to provide support to other indigenous and local communities located within water catchments and riparian areas in need.
