About the Climate Ready Tribes (CRT) Initiative

The National Indian Health Board aims to build the capacity of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribes to identify, assess, and take action to mitigate climate-related health threats.

Tribal communities are particularly vulnerable to the health effects associated with climate change. It is clear that preparing, mitigating, and adapting for climate change effects is important. Communities that have high vulnerability and exposure to climate hazards are at far greater risk than those with more capacity and resources to effectively deal with adverse climate-related health effects.

Climate Ready Tribes is a part of NIHB’s nationally-focused public health program and is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Learn more about the Climate Ready Tribes Initiative on the "events" and "resources" pages.
