Alaska Institute for Justice

To advance a rights-based response that protects and respects the rights of Native Alaskan tribes who are threatened by encroaching erosion as a result of melting glacials and sea level rise. The Alaska Institute for Justice (AIJ) seeks funding for its climate justice project: Rights, Resilience and Community-based Relocation. Climate-induced community relocations are perhaps the greatest human rights challenge of our time. Through UUSC funding, AIJ will work with 15 Alaska Native Tribes to develop advocacy strategies to enhance their ability to adapt to a radically changing environment and ensure their human rights are protected if they are required to relocate as a consequence of climate change.
