Stillaguamish Vulnerability Assessment

Full Title

Assessing the Climate Vulnerability of Key Species and Habitats for the Stillaguamish Tribe

Project Overview

Climate change is projected to have significant impacts on natural resources utilized by Washington tribes for economic, cultural, and subsistence purposes. To help reduce and prepare for those impacts, the Stillaguamish Tribe is contracting with the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group (CIG) to assess the vulnerability of key species and habitats for the Tribe. The project will draw on published literature; existing data, tools, and methodologies; and the expert knowledge of the CIG and Stillaguamish tribal staff to qualitatively assess the climate vulnerability of key species and habitats for the Stillaguamish Tribe. Specifically, the report will focus on impacts projected through 2100, and will assess the exposure, sensitivities, and adaptive capacities of species and habitats identified for inclusion in the vulnerability assessment.
