WH OSTP Tribal Consultation on Nature-Based Solutions
August 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT
You are invited to join the White House for a Tribal Consultation on August 15, 2022 from 4-5pm ET to discuss the forthcoming White House report on nature-based solutions.
On April 22, 2022, President Biden signed Executive Order 14072 on “Strengthening the Nation’s Forests, Communities, and Local Economies.” In this Order, the President recognized that nature holds special importance to Tribal Nations, and recognized the significance of nature to sustain the plant and animal life fundamental to combatting the global climate and biodiversity crises.
The Executive Order called for a report ‐ led by the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, Council on Environmental Quality, and Domestic Climate Policy Office ‐ that identifies key opportunities for greater deployment of nature‐based solutions across the Federal Government, including through potential policy, guidance, and program changes. The Federal members of this effort recognize that the ideas shared in the report may affect Tribal Nations and acknowledge the experience Tribal communities have in applying nature‐based solutions, which often provide other communities and Federal agencies with examples and advances.
