The Tribal Climate Change Project is a collaborative project between the University of Oregon Environmental Studies Program and the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station. The project aims to understand the needs, lessons learned, and opportunities American Indian tribes have in planning for the physical effects of climate change. This information will be used to inform resource management decision-making in the context of climate change. This project is part of the USDA Forest Service 2010 Coordinated Approach to Tribal Climate Change Research. Other Forest Service Research Stations engaged in this type of research include the Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station and the Forest Service Northern Research Station.
