Abstract
From Introduction: This report represents a significant first-step to synthesize environmental information and to use that information to inform others about future conditions and potential outcomes in the BCB region for people and their communities. As such, many scientific uncertainties were identified and information needs noted as they pertain to climate change adaptation planning. Human needs and considerations tend to be considered holistically throughout. This is somewhat novel, especially given that multiple nations (USA, Canada, and Russia) and governance structures are involved. There is a message throughout that ecosystem-level information is a necessary component for understanding climate effects and their interactions, including changing conditions far-removed from the BCB region. The latter includes environmental effects or changes in the marketplace due to globalization. There is strong agreement throughout the report that continuing subsistence activities will be a critical element of food security despite local participation in the cash economy. Subsistence lifestyles and resources must be protected through effective management across the entire BCB region. Within the planning dimension, scenarios could be more effectively employed to guide these strategies by applying the information assembled in this report.

Abstract
This assessment builds upon the previous AMAP human health assessment that was presented in "AMAP Assessment Report: Arctic Pollution Issues" that was published in 1998. The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) is a group working under the Arctic Council. The Arctic Council ministers have requested AMAP to: produce integrated assessment reports on the status and trends of the conditions of the Arctic ecosystems; identify possible causes for the changing conditions; detect emerging problems, their possible causes, and the potential risk to Arctic ecosystems including indigenous peoples and other Arctic residents; and to recommend actions required to reduce risks to Arctic ecosystems. The ministers have placed special priority on the potential impacts of contaminants on the health of Arctic residents, including the combined effects of mixtures of contaminants acting together with other potential stressors.
