This document suggests three components for communities to consider when planning for, implementing, and evaluating long-term adaptation goals. Adapting to change first requires a plan with strong community support. Tribes must then have practical steps for realizing this plan and for taking immediate action. Finally, because change is on-going, continuous evaluation is required to assess the success of actions already taken and ensure the long-term health of the community. Additional adaptations to climate change will become apparent with time; these strategies can be incorporated into this framework. Forming partnerships with organizations outside of the tribal community may also provide a great support system to continue building the capacity to adapt for many generations.
