The Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER), in partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, is in the process of undertaking a two-phased project to develop an applicable First Nations Climate Change and Infrastructure Guidance Document of vulnerability assessment tools and methodologies to assist First Nations in determining the best approach for adapting to climate change issues within 4 main focus areas (i.e., sea level rise and coastal flooding; inland flooding; forest fires; and, winter roads) related to infrastructure. We would appreciate your feedback to incorporate into this valuable research and development of the Guidance Document. We are looking for knowledgeable Band Councillors, lands department staff or other staff working on climate change and/or infrastructure projects/issues to complete our questionnaire!
