Summary

The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) Climate Change Program announces a webinar that will include an introduction to the Alaskan and Yukon Rivers Project and the Native Advisory Council application process.

During the webinar, participants can learn about a National Science Foundation Navigating the New Arctic Program-funded project looking at how climate change will affect river ice transportation corridors and fish habitat in Alaskan and Yukon rivers and about how to apply to be on the project’s Native Advisory Council.

The Council will help researchers evaluate input from the broader community and make decisions about research design, output, and more. The Council will also lead the design of an Arctic Rivers Summit Meeting currently scheduled to take place in Anchorage, Alaska during winter 2021/22. The Council’s structure, application process, and consultation fees will be discussed as well as other ways to participate in the project.
