Rising Voices: Collaborative Science with Indigenous Knowledge for Climate Solutions

Rising Voices is a community of engaged Indigenous leaders, Indigenous and non-Indigenous environmental experts, students, and scientific professionals across the United States, including representatives from tribal, local, state, and federal resource management agencies, academia, tribal colleges, and research organizations. Participants of Rising Voices convene annually at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO, to discuss the complex climate change challenges facing Indigenous peoples, current adaptation and mitigation strategies, protection of Indigenous knowledge, sustainable Indigenous practices, and political and institutional barriers.




Rocky Mountain Climate Organization

The Rocky Mountain Climate Organization (RMCO) works to keep the West a special place by reducing climate disruption and its effects. The organization's mission includes bringing people together to develop solutions, build consensus, and achieve results; spreading the word about what climate disruption can do and what can be done about it; and working to adapt to the changes that will be faced.




Rooted in Resilience

Rooted in Resilience, formerly called Bay Localize, seeks to confront the socio-economic challenges of climate instability by empowering communities to organize for basic human rights through flexible tools, models, and policies that strengthen their communities. Rooted in Resilience is committed to uplifting the voices and leadership of youth, low-income communities, communities of color, and indigenous communities.




Rural Climate Network

The Rural Climate Network is focused on resolving the social and ecological inequities of rural communities, while also empowering these communities to adapt to and mitigate climate change. Members of this network collaborate and share best practices for managing climate change impacts - between agriculture, forestry, and other natural resource dependent communities. This work then connects rural leaders in order to build local climate policy, and work with state and national policy development in order to create ecological and economic resilience.




Southeastern Climate Consortium (SECC) - RISA

The SECC is a member of NOAA's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, which supports climate research for decision-makers and policy planners at a regional level. SECC aims to use advances in climate sciences to provide scientifically sound information and decision support tools for agricultural ecosystems, forests and other terrestrial ecosystems, and coastal ecosystems of the Southeastern USA. SECC has developed AgroClimate, a prototype web-based information and decision support system first made available to the public in 2004 [http://AgroClimate.




Southern Regional Climate Center

The Southern Regional Climate Center (SRCC) is one of six regional climate centers in the U. S. managed by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The mission of the SRCC is to increase the use and availability of climate information in the southern region of the U. S. that comprises the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. SRCC personnel work closely with scientists from other regional and federal climate centers to enhance climate services and programs that provide a regional structure for climate applications.




USDA Regional Climate Hubs

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and partner agencies established regional Climate Hubs across the U.S. in 2014. The Hubs offer regionally focused tools, strategies management options, and technical support to farmers, ranchers and forest land owners to help them adapt to climate change. The Hubs also direct land managers to agencies that can provide program support to help implement adaptive management practices. 




Washington State Department of Natural Resources

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (WA DNR) manages 5.6 million acres of forest, range, agricultural, aquatic, and commercial lands for the people of Washington. These lands generate more than $200 million a year, much of it to support public schools, state institutions, and county services. They also manage these lands to provide fish and wildlife habitat, clean and abundant water, and public access.
