Abstract
Summary: The Arctic is undergoing rapid and dramatic environmental and social transformations due to climate change. This has ramifications for the entire planet, as change spreads through interconnected global networks that are environmental, cultural, economic and political. Today, with the major thrust of research shifting away from deciphering causes and monitoring trends, the central preoccupation of a growing circle of actors has become the exploration of strategies for responding and adapting to climate change. This book brings together the concerns of leading Arctic scientists in the natural and social sciences, prominent Chukchi, Even, Inuit and Saami leaders from across the circumpolar North, and international experts in education, health and ethics. It highlights the urgent need for a sustained interdisciplinary and multi-actor approach to monitoring, managing and responding to climate change in the Arctic, and explore avenues by which this can be achieved.--Publisher's description.

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 oral history, and historical documents provide evidence of climatic changes for thousands of years.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 Arctic is of special importance to the world and it is changing rapidly. It is thus essential that decision makers have the latest and best information available regarding ongoing changes in the Arctic. This report is a plain language synthesis of the key findings of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA), designed to make the scientific findings accessible to policymakers and the broader public. The ACIA is a comprehensively research, fully references, and independently reviewed evaluations of arctic climate change and its impacts for the region and for the world. It has involved an international effort by hundreds of scientists over four years, and also includes special knowledge of indigenous peoples.
The Arctic Council called for this assessment, and charged two of its working groups, the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) and the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF), along with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), with its implementation. Recognizing the central importance of the Arctic and this information to society as it contemplates responses to the growing challenge of climate change, the cooperating organizations are honored to forward this report to the Arctic Council and the international science community.
