Abstract
Global climate change is a growing concern, especially in Arctic regions where increases in temperature from anthropogenic influences could be considerably higher than the global average. Climatic changes are not new to the Arctic or its peoples. Indigenous peoples of the far north have adapted to the austere climate; different groups have found their own unique ways to harvest food and provide clothing, tools, and shelter. At times the climate has warmed or cooled relatively suddenly and people have either adapted, moved, or died off. The paleo-archaeological record, indigenous peoples? oral history, and historical documents provide evidence of climatic changes for thousands of years. Today, people of the Arctic, whether they continue to live close to the land or live in urban centers, must again confront rapid changes in climate. Various records over the last 40 years confirm that the rate of global warming has been greatest over Eurasia and North America between 40°N and 70°N (IPCC 1996a). Arctic research substantiates these observations through direct and indirect indicators of climate change. Sea ice, snow cover, glaciers, tundra, permafrost, boreal forests, and peatlands are all responsive to subtle variations in sunlight, surface temperature, ocean heat transport, air and ocean chemistry, and aerosols in the atmosphere. Compared with the rest of the globe, the Arctic climate is very sensitive to change because of a complex series of interactions and positive feedback processes among the region?s oceanic and atmospheric circulation patterns, temperature regime, hydrologic cycle, and sea ice formation (Barry et al. 1993a, Kellogg 1983, Mysak 1995).

Abstract
The integrity of Indigenous Peoples' food systems is intimately connected to the overall health of the environment. Recent declines in many aspects of environmental quality, from loss of biodiversity to environmental contamination, have combined with social, economic, political and cultural factors to threaten the health and well-being of Indigenous Peoples, and ultimately of people everywhere. This has affected the quality of indigenous food, restricted its availability or curtailed access to it. All of the global case studies of Indigenous Peoples in the Indigenous Peoples' Food Systems for Health Program indicate concerns over environmental degradation as a major aspect of Indigenous Peoples' declining use of their indigenous food. Interconnected concerns include biodiversity loss of wild species and of cultivated species and varieties; hydroelectric dams and their impacts on fish and other foods; contamination of water and food from a host of chemical, radioactive and biological pollutants; and climate change, with its accompanying uncertainties and instabilities regarding food systems. Reconnecting Indigenous Peoples with their traditional territories, and reversing some of the restrictive regulations against Indigenous Peoples' historical hunting and plant harvesting practices may help to restore and maintain traditional resources. More cooperative arrangements for co-management of habitats and resources should be instated. Collaborative research is recommended, such as that reflected in this volume in which environmental and other relationships among Indigenous Peoples' cultures, lands and resource stewardship are complemented with supporting work by academic partners. Ultimately, this will help to maintain and strengthen the resilience of ecosystems and cultural systems, including diverse and healthy food systems.

Abstract
The worldwide burden of disease is large, with significant negative impacts on the quality of life, including economic productivity. It will be a continuing task to overcome these obstacles. Climate change is an additional challenge that could work for or against efforts to control climate-sensitive diseases. The global community of public health scholars and practitioners is being challenged to take into account the added threats from climate change. The first chapters of this book introduce the basic concepts. The subsequent chapters focus on case studies in public health that may have relevance to adaptation to climate change. The final chapters turn to the policy implications for adaptation to climate change.
