The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a
webinar entitled "Community-Based Surveys Inform Climate Change
Adaptation in Rural and Frontier Communities in Alaska" on Tuesday, 10
September 2013 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. AKDT. The webinar will be
presented by David Driscoll from the Institute for Circumpolar Health
Studies at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Effective adaptations by northern residents to climate change require
measurement and discussion of environmental effects and health outcomes
at the local level. More than 60 participants representing eight
communities across Alaska provided monthly surveys from 2011 to 2012
including observations on local weather, hunting and harvesting, food
and water safety, and general health and air quality. Results were
presented in each community, and vulnerabilities and adaptation
strategies were assessed. The second round of data will assess the
utility of these communications and adaptive practices. Dr. Driscoll
will discuss the results of the surveys and the future implications and
directions for this study.
