Tribal Climate Listening Sessions

EO 13985 calls on agencies to advance equity through identifying and addressing barriers to equal opportunity that underserved communities may face due to government policies and programs. As part of its implementation of EO 13985, Department of the Interior (DOI) coordinated with a third-party neutral facilitator to conduct 15 virtual listening sessions, during October thru December of 2021. Five of these sessions in particular were focused on climate change, discretionary grants, and Tribal Nations. The Department would like to ensure that the efforts and initiatives it develops to meet these priorities are designed based on feedback and information from across Indian Country and Alaska Native Villages.

These listening sessions will inform DOI-wide efforts to come. The third-party neutral facilitator prepared a final recommendations report for the Department, which will inform the forthcoming DOI Equity Plan. Please see summaries below from each of the five sessions for Tribes.
