Considerations for climate change and variability adaptation on the Navajo nation

Source(s):  National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS)
University of Colorado

This report aims to provide the Navajo Nation with information regarding the adaptation planning in response to climate change and variability. It discusses actions being undertaken in response to climate change, the adaptation planning process, and engagement implementation and monitoring strategy. The paper focuses on nine key sectors or resources for the adaptation planning process: water, farming, range, health, tourism, biodiversity, forest, community infrastructure, and energy.

This paper also provides a helpful platform for Navajo decision-makers to continue assessing how to best adapt to a changing climate while managing the Reservation’s unique resources in the manner the Nation feels would be most beneficial for its people.
