Data & Research Priorities for Southwest Tribal Climate Resilience Summit

The Data & Research Priorities for Southwest Tribal Climate Resilience Summit

A free one-day virtual event on October 21, 2020

Open to tribal leaders and staff, students, scholars, and others 

During the COVID19 pandemic and climate crisis we are at a time where we are forced to restructure and rethink how we address the concerns within and beyond our communities. We are seeing the gaps and barriers that have been identified, as well as the opportunities to strengthen our communities toward long term wellbeing. How can we center Indigenous governance and lifeways as we go through this transition? What has COVID19 made apparent as related to the climate crisis? What tribal and other institutional research and data governance strategies and challenges have emerged?

Tribal communities have the right to define, collect, protect, interpret, manage, and apply data in a way that respects Indigenous ethics, values, and relational responsibilities. These rights are critically relevant in the context of increasing climate impacts, where Indigenous communities need access to culturally relevant data to inform effective decision-making and to strengthen climate resilience
