This initiative was inspired by Building Climate Resilience & Adaptation in the Kainai First Nation – Phase I Capacity Building
Phase II builds on the very successful pilot (link to Phase I) that shows how partners can work together in weaving traditional and scientific knowledges to develop long-term resilience.
The first-steps identified for Phase II are:
- Create three best-practice reports on flood, fire, and drought adaptation.
- Develop next-step adaptation strategies that weave knowledge from the best practices reports with Blackfoot knowledge.
- Scale up the restoration of Prairie Grasslands.
These steps will provide the necessary information for implementing larger adaptation strategies and will link nature-based solutions and community initiatives to adaptation strategies such as bringing bison back to the land.
