Climate Change Monitoring
If you have observations that you wish to note and share you can submit them here. These observations will be regularly posted on the map.
The Cree Trappers Association (CTA), the James Bay Advisory Committee on the Environment (JBACE) and the Cree Regional Authority (CRA) received funding beginning in 2009 from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada to carry out a project for the “Identification of Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Measures for the Hunters, Trappers and Communities of Eeyou Istchee”.
The main purposes of this project are to:
improve the understanding of the environmental implications of climate change in James Bay (Eeyou Istchee), drawing both on local (Cree) and Western science perspectives;
improve the understanding of the human implications of climate change for Eeyou Istchee, with a specific focus on the impacts on hunters, trappers and other community members;
identify the vulnerabilities of Eeyou Istchee to climate change, as well as the possible avenues for mitigation of, and adaptation to its impacts;
enhance awareness among Cree of the implications of climate change in their territory; and
encourage Cree participation in mitigation and adaptation measures.
