Climate Change Adaptation Planning Toolkit For Indigenous Communities


The objective of the Indigenous Climate Change Adaptation Planning (ICCAP) Toolkit is to provide a suite of user-friendly tools, resources, and key considerations to support Indigenous individuals and communities interested in undertaking climate change adaptation planning. The intent is for the toolkit to be used by communities at all different stages of the adaptation planning process, including communities with little or no prior experience. The ICCAP Toolkit is currently available in English and will soon be available in French as well.

The ICCAP Toolkit was created by the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) in partnership with Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada’s (CIRNAC) First Nations Adapt program. The ICCAP Toolkit consists of the following 4 key components:

  1. Indigenous Climate Change Adaptation Guidance document
  2. Climate Change Adaptation Planning Guidebooks for Indigenous Communities
  3. Indigenous Languages Glossary Workbook
  4. ​Two Indigenous Language Glossaries
