Building Resilience in Indigenous Communities Initiative: Overview of Grant Guidelines
Resilience Theory is a discussion about how communities and societies will adapt to climate change. We understand that we must mitigate climate change and adapt, or we will be in a very difficult place as Indigenous peoples. Honor the Earth’s Building Resilience in Indigenous Communities Initiative will grant to organizations working to increase Indigenous communities’ capacity to prevent and adapt to climate change in ways that preserve and restore Indigenous cultures.
Funding for the Building Resilience in Indigenous Communities Initiative will focus on two goals:
1. Development of culturally-..based, Indigenous solutions to climate change based on re-localizing food and energy economies;
2. Restoration of traditional knowledge as a key adaptation and mitigation strategy to ensure a safe and healthy future for our children and the next seven generations.
Please view the full version of the guidelines, application procedures and download new cover sheets at: http:../../..www...honorearth...org/..grantmaking/..guidelines and please forward this message to any other groups that may be interested in our Resilience funding.
