Alliance Awarded Funding for New "Resilient Restoration" Project

We are excited to announce a new project led by the Climate Science Alliance Tribal Working Group in partnership with researchers at the University of California, Riverside and San Diego State University, Resilient Restoration: Advancing Ecological, Cultural, and Community Resilience with Tribal Nations in Southern California, has been funded as part of the California Strategic Growth Council Climate Research Program. This project focuses on promoting Tribal resilience by developing knowledge and supporting actions that enhance persistence of cultural practices with a focus on preserving the ecosystems and species that are integral to Tribal communities.

We are excited to announce a new project led by the Climate Science Alliance Tribal Working Group in partnership with researchers at the University of California, Riverside and San Diego State University. Resilient Restoration: Advancing Ecological, Cultural, and Community Resilience with Tribal Nations in Southern California has been funded by the California Strategic Growth Council Climate Research Program. This research program focuses on building resilience in vulnerable communities and ecosystems, advancing climate adaptation solutions, and supporting the development of clean energy technologies.

The goal of the Resilient Restoration project, which will begin later this fall, is to promote Tribal resilience by developing knowledge and supporting actions that enhance persistence of cultural practices with a focus on preserving the ecosystems and species that are integral to Tribal communities. The research undertaken as part of this project will advance our understanding of climate change impacts on culturally significant plants, which will inform the development of strategies to advance conservation and restoration of native plant communities on Tribal lands and surrounding areas. Additionally, the project will explore the feasibility of economic development and entrepreneurial models that can work in tandem to advance Tribal resilience.


The Climate Science Alliance Tribal Working Group will play a key leadership role to determine the vision, priorities, goals, and deliverables.

We are excited to begin this important work alongside an amazing group of partners.
