Developing Drought Adaptation Plans for the Flandreau Santee and Standing Rock Sioux Tribes

Project Timeline
January 2017 - December 2018
Project Status

This project sought to develop drought adaptation plans for the Flandreau Santee Tribe and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. This project is unique in that it is sponsored in part by the Great Plains Tribal Water Alliance. The drought plan will serve as a platform to improve resilience where possible and as a framework to connect other planning/resilience efforts like multi-hazard mitigation plans and agricultural resource management plans. This plan built on the drought vulnerability assessment done in BIA 2016 Tribal Climate Resilience Grant Category 1 and 2.
