Preparing the Takla Lake First Nation Community (TLFN) for the Impacts of Climate Change. Phase I: Vulnerability and Risk Assessment of our Traditional Lands

The vulnerability and risk assessment of the territory planned for phase 1 of the project consists of six operations. The first is to host a number of meetings and gatherings with community members and the Chief and Council to present the project and collect information. The second operation is to compile community-based good practices for vulnerability and risk assessments and integrate it into the community's assessment methodology. The third is to collect and interpret future climate change model data including regional downscaling climate models. The fourth operation is to create a guideline of traditional cultural data which includes existing cultural uses, interviews on changes of food harvest and natural disturbance events. The fifth is to combine climate science and cultural data to assess vulnerability and risk to future climate changes. This will be achieved with the identification of the impacts on the community's economy and infrastructure, their priorities, and their resilience. The last operation is to complete the assessment by identifying risks, resilience and long-term climate change for the community.
