Tribal Nations and Alaska Native villages face significant challenges in responding and strengthening resilience to the extreme weather events and environmental hazards resulting from climate change. 

The Tribal Climate Resilience Liaison Network assembles a team of Liaisons located throughout the United States who support Tribal Nations and Alaska Native villages in their region to advance adaptation planning and implementation in the face of climate change. 

Liaisons serve as extension agents, facilitating research, linking Tribal needs to available resources, and coordinating trainings, workshops, forums, and exchanges. Liaisons can:

  • Help Tribes access information, data, and expertise with the Climate Adaptation Science Centers and elsewhere;
  • Facilitate research integrating Indigenous Knowledges (IK); and
  • Support Tribal forums and information exchange. These efforts are designed to better understand, communicate, and meet the needs of Tribes through partnerships to promote more resilient Tribal communities.
