Climate Change and Health Adaptation Program
Department of Indigenous Services Canada’s Climate Change and Health Adaptation Program for Southern First Nations
Department of Indigenous Services Canada’s Climate Change and Health Adaptation Program (CCHAP) was developed to build capacity in research by funding community-driven projects, enabling communities to develop health-related adaptation or action plans and communication materials that may help in adaptation decision-making at the community, regional and national levels with respect to human health and a changing environment.
This program will provide up to $100,000 annually for community-driven or regional research and action oriented projects, to help southern First Nations minimize risks and adapt to the impacts of climate change on human health. Regional/region can refer to an Eco zone, treaty or political zones or cluster of communities who want to work together on tackling climate change as a health issue.
