ACCAP is partnering Glenn Gray and Associates and Alaska Sea Grant to identify best practices for supporting climate adaptation planning in Northwest Alaska. Findings will provide guidance for those interested in supporting climate adaptation planning for coastal communities across Alaska.
In Alaska, average annual statewide temperatures have risen almost 4°F from 1949 to 2005, so Alaskans are already responding to a changing climate. As oceans, landscapes, and ecosystems continue to change in the coming decades. individuals and communities will need tools and information to help them adapt—responding to the current impacts as well as trying to increase resilience to future impacts.
