Webinar Recording: Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources for Northwest and Great Basin Tribes

Are you concerned about what climate change might mean for your tribe? The Climate Impacts Group, in partnership with the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC), hosted a webinar to introduce a new suite of Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources designed to support Northwest and Great Basin tribes’ efforts to assess climate risks to natural and cultural resources.

In this webinar, Dr. Meade Krosby, Senior Scientist at the Climate Impacts Group and University Deputy Director of the NW CASC, introduced the web-based resources, including: 

A Tribal Climate Tool, which provides interactive maps, graphs and reports summarizing projected changes in climate for the unique geographies and impacts of concern to Northwest and Great Basin tribes.

Upcoming Webinar: Climate Resilience in Flood Risk Management – Culvert Design

Join CIG’s Guillaume Mauger and the Washington Silver Jackets on Wednesday, September 19th  at 10 AM for a webinar on Climate Resilience in Flood Risk Management: Culvert Replacement. Washington state is currently mandated to replace thousands of culverts that create barriers to fish passage, resulting in a substantial reduction in available habitat. Given the scale of this investment, WA Department of Fish and Wildlife and UW Climate Impacts Group have begun to assess the potential impacts of climate change on culvert design. George Wilhere, a senior research scientist in the habitat program at WDFW, and Guillaume Mauger, a research scientist in climate science at CIG, will review recent research, describe two new online tools, and discuss potential applications.
