Partner Webinar: ITEP’s Status of Tribes & Climate Change (STACC) Report
September 22 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm
Join us for the first webinar of a series which will focus on the Status of Tribes and Climate Change (STACC) report, a new report written by a working group and convened by the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) Tribes & Climate Change Program. STACC seeks to uplift and honor the voices of Indigenous peoples across the U.S. to increase understanding of Tribal lifeways, cultures, and worldviews; the climate change impacts Tribes are experiencing; the solutions they are implementing; and ways that all of us can support Tribes in adapting to our changing world. Over 90 authors from different entities including the authors of 34 personal Tribal narratives contributed to the publication of the first STACC Report. It was written for diverse audiences including Tribal managers, leaders, and community members; the authors of future National Climate Assessments; federal and state agencies and decision makers; and non-governmental organizations. This first webinar will focus on introducing the Report and will give you a chance to hear from key authors of the Report.
