    Inuvialuit Settlement Region Climate Change Strategy (Opens in a new Window)

    Few places in the world are experiencing the effects of anthropogenic climate change as rapidly and intensely as the Inuvialuit Settlement Region or ISR, in the Western Arctic. Inuvialuit communities and Traditional Knowledge experts have raised deep concerns about climate change and the rapid and unfamiliar environmental transformations underway, including shifting ice freeze-up and break-up trends, plant and animal species migration, coastal erosion, permafrost degradation, flooding and health and wellness effects. The ISR Climate Change Strategy aims to address the wide-ranging issues and opportunities that Inuvialuit communities face and will continue to experience in the coming years. The strategy covers core goals and enabling actions across six thematic areas: Food and Wellness, Safety, Housing and Infrastructure, Education and Awareness, Ecosystem Health and Diversity, and Energy.
