Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes a pilot project on integrated adaptation planning processes in Clyde River, a small hamlet on northeast Baffin Island, Nunavut. It involved community members (including school students and local decision-makers), scientists, and professional planners. Local and traditional knowledge was of paramount importance. The outcome was an action-oriented climate change community adaptation plan listing 38 distinct actions for adapting to specific risks identified by the community (e.g., permafrost degradation and unpredictable sea ice). Many valuable lessons were learned and are being applied to planning processes in other remote northern communities.
