Current Projects

Climate Change and Environmental Justice

Through this project, First Nations is leading multiple efforts to support community partners in addressing climate change and promoting environmental justice.

This work is made possible with support from the Bezos Earth Fund, a $10 billion commitment launched in 2020 to fund scientists, activists, NGOs, and private-sector entities that are taking critical action to combat the climate crisis, preserve and protect the natural world, and support climate justice.

First Nations’ Climate Change and Environmental Justice work includes providing technical assistance and financial support in three project areas. In 2022, First Nations awarded grants to Native-led organizations in Native communities through all three project areas.
