Climate Science Grant Writing for Tribes in New Mexico

Dec. 16, 2015 - Dec. 17, 2015

UNM Science and Technology Park
801 University Blvd, Albuquerque, NM

In conjunction with OU’s Center for Research Program Development and Enrichment and the EPSCoR offices of Oklahoma and New Mexico, the South Central Climate Science Center is pleased to offer two opportunities in New Mexico to help develop a funding strategy for your tribal vulnerability assessments and climate adaptation plans.

1) Personalized Grant Writing Training: This half-day workshop is an open for your needs. If you are new to grant writing and want introductory grant writing knowledge we will be there to assist you. This also an opportunity to have our team review a grant or proposal you may need help with. Maybe you just don’t know where to start, let us help you develop a strategy. We would like to hear from you as we develop our forum so please let us know what you want help with when you register and we will do our best to assist you.

2) Developing Your Funding Strategy: This full-day workshop will focus on developing a funding strategy for your tribal vulnerability assessments and climate adaptation plans. It will also include developing the social skills or “soft skills” needed to create a successful grant proposal such as: how to approach potential partners, speak with program officers, and talk to climate scientists.

Please register via email to Kim Merryman (Kim.Merryman@Chickasaw.net) at the South Central Climate Science Center. In the message include your name, job title, organization, email, and phone number.

Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for Tribes - NM

Oct. 26, 2015 - Oct. 29, 2015

Santa Fe, NM

This course will be taught by the National Conservation Training Center and is designed to guide conservation and resource management practitioners in two essential elements in the design of climate adaptation plans: (1) identifying which species or habitats are likely to be most strongly affected by projected changes; and (2) understanding why these resources are likely to be vulnerable. Vulnerability Assessments are a critical tool in undertaking any climate change planning or implementation. We will use regionally specific examples tailored to participants.

Please register via email to April Taylor (April.Taylor@Chickasaw.net) at the South Central Climate Science Center. In the message include your name, job title, tribal affiliation, email, phone number, mailing address, and the workshop location you will be attending.
