October 2010

The ultimate goal of the Swinomish Climate Change Initiative of the Swinomish Tribal Community was to develop an action plan for the adaptation and mitigation of potential risks and impacts of climate change. Under the guidance and coordination of the Swinomish Office of Planning and Community Development, the first year of the Initiative was devoted to the assessment of projected impacts, as presented in an Impact Assessment Technical Report issued in the fall of 2009. The second year of the project was focused on the evaluation of strategies and options for recommended actions to counter identified impacts, which resulted in the preparation and release of this report.
