Climate Change Planning Tools for First Nations Guidebooks. 2006.
Climate change is affecting all of us. Finding the tools to adapt to these changes is becoming increasingly more important. First Nations peoples in Canada are significantly affected by climate change because of where we live and how we continue to rely on the environment for economic and cultural success. Community planning is an important tool for First Nations to use to adapt to changes in the environment, plan for the needs of their community and build a healthy society and culture. These six Guidebooks ‘walk and talk’ a First Nation through the planning process. Each develops an important part of the planning process and is a precursor to the next guidebook. They contain: suggestions of how a First Nation might plan for climate change, how to involve the community, and activities that a First Nation can use to involve members of the community to set priorities and achieve them.
