Summary
"This paper focuses on assessing projected climate change impacts to water resources, including drinking water, in First Nation communities. It identifies possible adaptation strategies for those First Nation communities to cope with the projected climate change impacts to water. The paper highlights the unique ways in which climate change will impact First Nation communities. Residents of these communities represent some of the most vulnerable members of the population. In its consideration of adaptation strategies, the discussion is grounded in an analysis of the major barriers to adaptation that exist for First Nations, identifying key changes required to overcome these barriers in order to make adaptation possible."
