The Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) created six guidebooks to help First Nations through the adaptation planning process. These guidebooks offer suggestions of how a First Nation might plan for climate change, involve the community, and set and achieve priority goals.

A related case study was also developed in partnership with CIER to highlight development of the guidebooks and lessons learned.

The CIER website offers other helpful adaptation resources also: Implementing Adaptive Capacity – First Nations in Transition (T’Sou-ke Nation) webcast (part of Sharing Knowledge for a Better Future program), Managing the Risk of Climate Change – A Guide for Arctic and Northern Communities, Climate Change Impacts on Ice, Winter Roads, Access Trails and Manitoba First Nations and Climate Risks and Adaptive Capacity in Aboriginal Communities – An Assessment South of 60 Degrees Latitude. Visit the CIER Climate Change publications page.
