Affiliated faculty Mark Stone is leading a $15 million, five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation  engages eight universities and their communities in the American Intermountain West to address the impacts of climate change, including drought, wildfires and community well-being. The TN represents a partnership between eight Western U.S. universities with over 50 partner organizations representing tribal partners, governmental and non-governmental organizations, public utilities, conservation districts, irrigation districts, and municipalities.
