While retreat from the coast may be the safest, and likely inevitable, solution to increasing coastal erosion for many communities, practical and cultural factors come into play that would argue for short-term engineering solutions to buy time, especially for indigenous coastal communities in a permafrost region. Several indigenous communities in Alaska rely upon subsistence hunting that is tied to the sea to foster community cohesiveness and to transfer traditions from generation to generation.
