What we do

The Collaborative of Native Nations for Climate Transformation and Stewardship (CNNCTS) advances a model of Indigenous-led lands stewardship for climate adaptation and resilience.

We do this by taking a community-based approach that leverages our local networks and past project successes in Southern California. Together, we support coastal resilience, cultural and prescribed fire, climate-informed restoration, and land rematriation efforts that center community priorities and relationships with the land.

The CNNCTS network

IEMM and the Climate Science Alliance co-lead CNNCTS with the guidance of Climate Science Alliance’s Tribal Working Group. Our network includes four universities, four Tribal governments, six Tribal-serving non-profit organizations, and three federal agencies.
