Impacts

CSKT is experiencing longer and more severe fire seasons annually; and those fires are causing more damage to valuable resources. Over the recent 20-year period from 1998 to 2017, 1,572 wildfires burned 139,956 acres of the 1.2 million acre Flathead Reservation. 

Primer

We will integrate and update climate impacts to vulnerable resources as outlined in the 2013 CSKT Climate Change Strategic Plan (updated in 2015) to build climate resilience within CSKT tribal land and in our communities.  To read the CSKT CCAC Primer, click here.

Planning

The Climate Change Advisory Committee of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes will take the lead in planning and executing a series of gatherings and other activities focused on creating a new Climate Change Strategic Plan for 2019.
