Policy and Program Support
At Anwaatin we know that treaty rights and stewardship of Traditional Territories must be understood, documented, asserted and respected.
Indigenous peoples are on the frontlines of climate change, experiencing dramatic shifts. Anwaatin supports climate change action, resiliency and energy projects concerning Indigenous Nations at the Federal, Provincial and Municipal level. We work to build collaborative and strategic partnerships that help position Indigenous communities as stewardship warriors in taking action on climate change in their Traditional Territories and beyond.
Anwaatin is working with community leaders to strengthen biodiversity and resilience in the face of climate change. We put in place the key factors to promote strong built and natural resource infrastructure to mitigate the impacts of climate change. We are making sure that communities have plans and strategies in place to deal with the impacts of climate change on natural resources, infrastructure, communities and families.
