The 2017 Southwest Tribal Climate Change Summit, held on September 19-21, 2017, provided environmental professionals from regional tribes, and other organizations an opportunity to meet and discuss strategies to respond to current policies, regulatory initiatives, and technical topics in responding to climate change impacts.
