In the fall of 2007, CIER carried out a project on climate change impacts and adaptation for First Nations South of 60. The funding was obtained from the Climate Change program area of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). CIER conducted research on First Nation climate change priorities, and climate change adaptation examples, tools and case studies that could assist First Nations to begin work on adaptation. In addition to our own research, this project involved an Advisory Committee with First Nation, Métis, and Inuit members. CIER also did an online survey across Canada to understand Climate Change priorities and issues for Aboriginal communities. This report shares the information that CIER learned through this project on climate change priorities and key adaptation areas.
