Developing Drought Adaptation Plans for the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and Oglala Sioux Tribe

Project Timeline
January 2017 - December 2018

This project focused on developing drought adaptation plans for the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and the Oglala Sioux Tribe. This project is unique in that it is being 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 will built on the drought vulnerability assessment done in the Bureau of Indian Affairs 2016 Tribal Climate Resilience Grant Category 1 and 2.
