Indigenous people have lived and thrived for millennia along the Arctic coast. They are presently experiencing the dramatic effects of climate change in real-time and are voicing alarm. They are conveying their concerns through numerous agencies including the Arctic Council, national and sub-national governments, local community councils and Indigenous governments and agencies.

The Rapid Response Assessment (RRA) examines urgent research needs that have been identified by Arctic peoples and those most affected by changes occurring along Arctic coastlines. Within the context of a warming Arctic, it also considers permafrost processes that may have feedbacks at a global scale. The goal is to establish guidance on research needs and to provide a vision of a path forward to address these needs.
