About this book

Under the auspices of International Polar Year (IPY), the CAVIAR consortium was formed with partners from all eight Arctic countries. The aim of the interdisciplinary CAVIAR project is to increase understanding of the vulnerability of Arctic communities to changing environmental conditions, including climate change, and to contribute to the development of adaptive strategies and policies.

In partnership with local collaborators in over two dozen communities, researchers have documented the conditions and forces that contribute to vulnerabilities, identified adaptive strategies and attempted to assess the prospects for adaptation in the future.

Media reviews

"This book aims to present a human approach to understanding the vulnerabilities and adaptive capacities of communities, particularly those in the Arctic, that are experiencing rapid socio-economic and environmental changes. [...] I recommend this book particularly for Arctic researchers [...] . The book is also recommended for students in the social sciences, who can increase their understanding of the vulnerability of Arctic communities and apply the framework and knowledge developed by the multidisciplinary team in their studies and future careers."­­­
