Climate and Agricultural Resilience in the American Southwest Safeguarding Ancient Traditions Against Modern Threats – Dr Maureen McCarthy, University of Nevada

Jun 15, 2018 | earth and environment

Sustaining the availability of clean water is one of the greatest challenges humanity will face, as climate change leads to hotter, more extreme weather patterns that disrupt normal snow and rainfall worldwide. These changes are predicted to hit arid climates particularly hard, and the effects in such areas are already being felt in many countries across the globe. Dr Maureen McCarthy at the University of Nevada and the Desert Research Institute is working with Native American communities to help promote and preserve ancient tribal agricultural practices and water use in the United States.
