Tribal Climate Camp

University of Washington, Pack Forest Conference Center, Eatonville, Washington

*TCC is organized through a collaboration of Tribal and Non-tribal partners

The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI), Institute for Tribal Government (ITG), United South and Eastern Tribes (USET), and the Department of the Interior's (USDI) Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) are collaborating to offer Tribal Climate Camp (TCC) to support teams of tribal leaders, climate change coordinators, planners, and program managers to build skills, gather information, and develop tribal policy needed to address climate change impacts.

TTCC Goals and Objectives are based in understanding Native climate sensitivity

Native communities are among the most climate-sensitive groups within the Northwest, Southern and Eastern regions of the United States. Increasing the resilience of tribal governments and native communities is critical to prepare for future climate change scenarios.
