Some of the most tragic impacts of climate change are projected to come in the form of illness, injury, and death, which will disproportionately impact the most vulnerable members of a community. A comprehensive tribal climate change adaptation plan can help Native American tribal communities better understand, prepare for, and protect against such impacts. However, many adaptation plans place greater emphasis on environmental, infrastructural, or other issues and do not adequately analyze human health concerns. This may be because there can be an overwhelming amount of potential human health impacts and limited resources to obtain, understand, or analyze this information.
