Native Communities and Climate Change is a project of the University of Colorado Law School and Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Studies (CIRES). The Project received seed funding from the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute—a joint institute between the University of Colorado and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. It is currently funded by the Western Water Assessment (WWA)—a Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, one of eleven nation-wide funded by NOAA's Climate Program Office—and the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). The Native Communities and Climate Change project seeks to provide resources for climate change adaptation and natural resource planning by American Indian tribes as well as to provide useful information to organizations and agencies working with Indian tribes on these issues.
