Dangerous climate change and the importance of adaptation for the Arctic's Inuit population

Source(s):  Institute of Physics Publishing Limited (IOP)

Environmental Research Letters, no. 4, 2009:

This paper argues that, in order to prevent changes which will be dangerous for Inuit, a new policy discourse on climate change is required for Arctic regions—one that focuses on adaptation. The paper demonstrates that states with Inuit populations and the international community in general has obligations to assist Inuit to adapt to climate change through international human rights and climate change treaties. It advocates for a new focus on adaptation in both policy negotiations and scientific research is needed to enhance Inuit resilience and reduce vulnerability in a rapidly changing climate.
