The Climate Change Program will conduct a climate change vulnerability assessment within the Ceded Territories. Vulnerability assessments have become an important tool in understanding and adapting to climate change effects. The process evaluates how species, habitats, and ecosystems are vulnerable to climate change by evaluating factors such as their exposure, sensitivity, and ability to adapt to predicted changes. GLIFWC climate change staff will be compiling and analyzing existing data and literature to assess the vulnerability of a variety of Ceded Territory species and habitats.
