Pala Environmental Department PED PBMI Climate Change

Pala, CA – The Pala Band of Mission Indians and the Pala Environmental Department announces that the PED was featured on the ITEP Climate Change Program website.

Tribal Climate Change Health

In October 2016, the Pala Band of Mission Indians was awarded a five-year grant from the U.S. EPA for “Building the Capacity of Tribes to Address the Health Impacts of Climate Change.” The work was focused on developing an online, nationwide platform where tribes could learn about the health impacts of climate change. Tribes could utilize these resources to define health impacts and related action items in the process of drafting their own Climate Adaptation Plan. These resources would better equip tribes who wanted to ensure the health and well-being of tribal members in addressing the increasingly changing climate.
