National Climate Assessment: Indigenous Peoples, Lands, and Resources

2014

A chapter of the National Climate Assessment, this report provides an overview of the challenges that indigenous peoples in the United States face due to climate change, as well as the opportunities they have to prepare. Climate change will undermine indigenous ways of life and, in many cases, tribal adaptation efforts will be “limited by poverty, lack of resources, or [. . . ] because there may be no land left to call their own. ” The assessment emphasizes the importance of leveraging traditional knowledge for adaptation planning efforts.
