FireCLIME VA is a tool designed to assess ecosystem vulnerability to the effects of fire and climate regime change. It also facilitates the comparison of different ecosystem management strategies under various climate scenarios for reducing the undesirable impacts of climate on wildfire regimes and of wildfire on natural ecosystems
Increasing humidity and precipitation and rising extreme temperatures are having negative impacts across the Midwest. Integrating climate adaptation into planning processes can help build adaptive capacity to increase climate resilience. The U.S. Climate Resiliency Toolkit for the Midwest Region is an excellent resource to find case studies, tools, expertise and steps to resilience to plan adaptation to a changing climate in many sectors, including agriculture. 
Many tribal and non-tribal ranchers throughout the Great Basin either lack water access, or experience water shortages for their cattle operations. These shortages can negatively impact livestock grazing, an economic mainstay of tribal economies within the Basin. To address current and future water limitations, ranchers have successfully developed many innovative grazing and water management strategies that can be shared across operations to improve resiliency.
