The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy is continuing its monthly tribal energy webinar series in 2021 to share information, tools, resources, and potential funding opportunities. This year’s series will focus on how tribal energy projects can improve community resilience, foster economic development, and support environmental stewardship.
The 2021 series kicks off with Planning for a Changing Climate on April 28, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mountain Time. The climate is changing—and as it changes, our infrastructure must change with it. In this webinar we will discuss how climatological changes and extreme weather events are impacting tribal communities, and opportunities and tools available to tribes to help plan for and adapt to these changes.
This month's speakers are:
- Nikki Cooley; Co-Manager, Institute for Tribal Environmental Professional's (ITEP) Tribes & Climate Change Program
- Rachael M. Novak; BIA Tribal Resilience Coordinator
- LuAnn Dahlman; Co-Managing Editor of the U.S Climate Resilience Toolkit.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. Register now for the webinar and learn more about upcoming webinars in the Tribal Energy for Resilience, Economic Development, and Environmental Stewardship series.
