    $150K+ for indigenous climate monitoring projects 

    The impacts of climate change are already being felt across Canada and include social, cultural, ecological and economic implications. Indigenous communities are among the most vulnerable to climate change due to their relationship with the natural world, traditional lifestyles, and in some instances, geographic location.

    The goal of the Indigenous Community-Based Climate Monitoring Program is to support Indigenous peoples in monitoring climate indicators, which will provide the data required to inform community adaptation actions. In addition, the data can help address climate data gaps within Canada and improve climate models and weather predictions.

    The following organizations and individuals are eligible to receive funding through the program:

    • Indigenous communities and organizations (Métis Governing Member, Métis community, Inuit community, self-governing community, Land Claim Organizations)
    • First Nation band or tribal councils
    • Indigenous Individuals

    Deadline: Friday, February 16, 2018.  Project funding of $150,000+ is available.
