The Blackfeet Nation is actively building resilience to climate change. Recent actions in our nation are building adaptive capacity, actions that include integrated holistic planning, implementing our climate change adaptation plan, involving young people in a new climate change internship program, increasing access to information about climate-related health impacts, bringing buffalo back to the Reservation, preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species, and preserving landscape connectivity by promoting wildlife crossings over highways.
“Resilience is the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to adverse events.” –U.S. Global Change Research Program, pg. 29
