Evolution of DOI Climate Change Policy
  • Workgroup Meetings
  • Culminate in Shepherdstown, WV meeting
  • Focus on Tribes as
  • Sovereigns
  • Land Managers
  • Climate Change Partners
  • Concept of Environmental Justice
  • Need for Consultation on Climate Policy

  • Addressing the Impacts of Climate Change on
    Americas Water, Land, and Other Natural and
    Cultural Resources
  • Signed September 09.
  • Section 5 dedicated to American Indians and

  • Section 5 can be summed up as follows
  • Disproportionate Affect
  • Trust Responsibility
  • Best Available Science
  • Substantive Participation

  • Recently renamed Energy and Climate Change
    Council
  • Other Specific Activities
  • Planning Requirements
  • Regional Climate Change Response Centers
  • Landscape Conservation Cooperatives

Indian Tribes and Climate Change
  • What Tribes Need (from USGS DOI)jjjjjjj
  • Increased access to expertise and scientific
    research.
  • Increased monitoring of climate change indicators
    on Reservations.
  • Direct tribal participation in the development
    and operation of emissions taxation/trading
    schemes that may be developed.
  • Government-to-government consultation and
    substantive participation in the development of
    Departmental policy, objectives, and initiatives
    regarding climate change.

13
Indian Tribes and Climate Change
  • What Tribes Can Providejjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj
  • Tribal experience with resource stewardship and
    adaptation spans millennia.
  • Tribes have an accumulation of traditional
    knowledge and acute sensitivities to their
    environment.
  • Tribal peoples could be among the first to notice
    changes to ecological processes caused by climate
    change.
  • Many Tribes have sophisticated resource mgmt.
    programs.
  • Some Tribes (e.g. Quinault) have already adopted
    laws and policies on climate change.

14
Fire Management Integration of Traditional
Ecological Knowledge and Western Science
  • Traditional Ecological Knowledge
  • Fundamental land ethic.adaptive management
  • Indigenous legacies of experiential learning
  • Joint Fire Science Program collaboration
  • Intertribal Timber Council
  • University of Washington
  • BIA and USFS

15
Other Climate Policy Developments
Coral Diseases
  • E.O. 13514 - from President Obama 10/8/09
  • Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and
    Economic Performance
  • Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ)
    Coordination
  • Making federal government operations more
    sustainable
  • ? 30 federal fleet petroleum use by 2020
  • 26 improvement in water efficiency by 2020
  • 50 recycling and waste diversion by 2015
  • Sec. 9 Recommendations for Greenhouse Gas
    Accounting and Reporting

16
GHG Inventories Sec. 9 of EO 13514
  • Policy Decision (Still Draft)
  • Land management emissions and sequestration shall
    not be reported at this time.
  • Wildfire management and prescribed burning
    emissions shall not be reported.

17
Other CEQ Climate Activities http//www.whitehous
e.gov/ administration/eop/ceq/initiatives
  • CEQ to work with the Department of the Interior
    as the lead department to develop a national
    government-wide strategy to address climate
    change impacts on fish, wildlife, plants, and
    associated ecological processes. (FY 2010
    Interior Appropriation Report Language)
  • National Oceans Policy Task Force
  • Develop Framework for Coordination of all Federal
    Land Management Agencies to Address Climate
    Change
  • Adaptations Task Force

18
CEQ Adaptations Task Force
  • NEPA Guidance
  • Partnerships Collaborations
  • Easements Acquisitions
  • Adaptation Priorities
  • Wildland Fire Integrate Fuels Mgmt.
  • Education

equip communities with information and learn
from communities who have taken steps to adapt.
19
Climate Change FY 2012 Budget Cycle
  • Additional new funding unlikely
  • Climate funding from reallocating budget
    priorities is likely
  • TBAC request to form Climate Change Advisory
    Council

20
  • Carbon Sequestration

21
Carbon Sequestration Evolution
  • 2000 - Some Tribes begin marketing carbon
  • 2002 BIA attempts carbon policy draft
  • 2005 Ideas on Policy draft authority evolve
  • 2007 DOI SOL Opinion on draft
  • Carbon not a mineral
  • Carbon could be an other forest product
  • 2009 New draft presented at ITC Symposium
  • 2010 Still evolving

22
Current Dilemmas
  • DOI No Individual Bureau Policy - Yet
  • Legislation Cap and Trade, etc. - Stalled
  • Markets - Volatile and Changing Terms
  • Tribes - Moving Forward Wanting Guidance
  • Issues
  • Registry
  • Monitoring
  • Impacts on Fee into Trust
  • Term of Agreement
  • Best Market Value
  • Trust Funds? Payment Process?

23
Current Policy Thoughts?
  • All Tribal Lands
  • 25 CFR Part 84 Encumbrances of Tribal Land
  • Forest Lands Individually owned in Trust
  • 25 CFR Part 163 General Forestry Regulations
  • Ag/Range Lands Individually owned in Trust
  • 25 CFR Part 162 Leases and Permits
  • 25 CFR Part 166 Grazing Permits

24
Or ?
  • Do we think outside the box
  • Carbon sequestration agreements as.
  • Tribal Service Contracts ?
