Tribal, legal, and policy perspectives on ACECs and the opportunity to protect culturally and ecologically important public lands.
Objective: Increase awareness of ACECs as a regulatory tool to help protect and preserve public lands important to Tribes
Overview: Please join us for a panel discussion on Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) as guest speakers discuss Tribal, legal, and policy perspectives on ACECs and the opportunity to protect culturally and ecologically important public lands. In September, ATNI passed resolution #2021-38, entitled “Request the BLM develop an Area of Critical Environmental Concern regulation as required by the Federal Land Policy Management Act 1976”. Building upon this resolution we will examine the current political and policy landscape to advance the resolution’s mandate to “request the Secretary of the Interior to initiate and complete a Rulemaking for US Bureau of Land Management Areas of Critical Environmental Concern inclusive of the Department of Interior’s Government to Government consultation policy.”
