Rising Voices II Workshop

The Rising Voices II workshop (Adaptation to Climate Change and Variability: Bringing Together Science and Indigenous Ways of Knowing to Create Positive Solutions) will be held at NCAR June 30 - July 1, 2014The workshop will focus on the co-production of knowledge for adaptation solutions to climate change and variability and ask: What are the science, information, support and research needs of tribal communities to facilitate respectful and appropriate adaptation solutions to climate change and variability? During the two days, we will focus on the following themes related to adaptation to climate change and variability: (1) migration and relocation; (2) food security (subsistence; wild foods, plants and animals; agriculture, ranching); and (3) extreme changes, variability and events (flooding, drought, extreme heat, rising sea levels, melting permafrost).

The perspective of NCAR and UCAR researchers is critical to these discussions, and staff is encouraged to participate in the upcoming conversation, which will take place over two days (June 30-July 1) in the Center Green auditorium.
