2019 Looking Forward, Looking Back: Building Resilience Today Workshop Application

The Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center and partners are pleased to invite your community to apply for a series of trainings and a community-based workshop designed to assist with planning for impacts from climate change.

The Building Resilience Today training series will provide support for communities taking steps to address local issues and concerns related to our warming Alaskan climate. Community leadership interested in building their collective understanding of a rapidly changing Alaskan climate are encouraged to apply as a team. There is no cost for the training. Travel assistance, which includes lodgings, meals and incidental expenses, is available for successful community teams.

The series builds upon the indigenous and place-based knowledge of participating communities, and will cover:

  • understanding climate systems and local to global responses to climate change impacts
  • projected change on traditional, currently-used and ANCSA village corporation lands
  • an overview of the planning tools and resources available to communities to support theiradaptation planning efforts and action

Interested teams are required to apply and be accepted to participate. The trainings are a collaborative project developed by the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center (AK CASC), Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA), the Alaska Center for Climate and Arctic Policy (ACCAP), the Scenarios Network for Alaska + Arctic Planning (SNAP) and the International Arctic Research Center (IARC). These trainings are sponsored by a grant from the Bureau of Indian Affairs Tribal Resilience Program (Award #A18AP00231).
