Impacts of Climate Change on the Mi'gmaq of New Brunswick

This project has six objectives. The first objective is to update the model data including data collection and scenario building. The second objective is to complete wet areas mapping and to present results to communities. The third objective is to update modeling tools information to the new IPCC 2013 report sea level rise scenarios and adjust modeling tools accordingly. The fourth is to provide support to communities so they can participate in community climate change adaptation planning initiatives through activities such as providing products from modeling tools and expertise, and initiate a climate change adaptation planning committee in Indian Island First Nation. The fifth objective is to assess the effectiveness of the sea wall recently installed at Eel River Bar and Indian Island. The assessment will be done by completing flooding scenarios by updating modeling tools. Findings will be presented to the Chief and council of Eel River Bar and Indian Island. Finally, the last objective of the project is to document and map community elder climate observations in collaboration with Mi'Kmaq Confederacy of PEI to design a values mapping process for documenting climate change in communities, delivering values mapping sessions with the communities and interpreting data and geo-referencing.
