The 2019 Climate Adaptation Plan is a living document that may evolve through successive updates, be expanded as needed, and serve different purposes over time as deemed appropriate by the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians. The Plan was prepared by the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians Environmental Department in collaboration with the Climate Science Alliance, with funding from the Bureau of Indian Affairs at the U.S. Department of the Interior.

KCET, a public broadcasting station in Southern and Central California, recently featured the La Band of Luiseño Indians Adaptation Plan in their article, “The Disproportionate Impact of Climate Change on Indigenous Communities”, which referenced multiple California Tribes who are leading climate change-related planning and adaptation.
