Mean annual coastal erosion in arctic Alaska (Beaufort Sea shoreline)
Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
In the Arctic, impacts of climate change will include
increased coastal erosion. For Arctic human
communities impacts are projected to be mixed, with
detrimental impacts expected on infrastructure and
traditional indigenous ways of life in these regions. Food
security for some subsistence systems will be threatened through changes in natural ecosystems.
