Northwest, Southwest, and South Central CASCs contributed to the planning of the 2023 Southwest Tribal Climate Camp that sought to support Tribal delegations in their work towards forming climate adaptation and resilience plans that they could bring back to their communities.
2023 Southwest Tribal Climate Camp Reflections
Taking place in March of 2023 the 2023 Southwest Tribal Climate camp was hosted by Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians and Navajo Technical University and was held at the Ghost Ranch Education & Retreat Center near Abiquiu, New Mexico. The Northwest, Southwest, and South Central CASCs partnered with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals to help plan and organize the camp.
The Southwest Tribal Climate Resilience Liaison Anissa McKenna attended the event and shared her reflections in a post for the Southwest CASC. She noted the variety of Tribal members, partners, and others who came together to join in breakout sessions, technical presentations, project presentations, cultural activities and field trips. These activities allowed the participants the space to really think about what climate issues their communities are facing and set priorities and goals for their climate action plans.
