Abstract or Summary
  • The impacts of climate change are being observed worldwide. However, some regions and context specific situations make particular areas more vulnerable to the impacts than others. Alaska’s Kenai River Watershed (KRW) is on the front lines of climate change and may be especially vulnerable to the impacts due to distinct circumstances shaped by differences in geography, environmental, socioeconomic, and political factors. This report provides a thorough assessment of the most vulnerable social-ecological-economic systems within the KRW. The purpose of this comprehensive assessment is to ensure that climate change impacts are examined in relationship to context specific vulnerabilities and that local resource issues and community concerns within the KRW are not being overlooked. Several policy objectives, adaptive strategies, and research goals, that address a multitude of issues both old and new, are suggested as starting points. The hope is that by approaching climate change at a more localized level and taking into consideration site-specific circumstances, future policy debates may become better informed and the fundamental frameworks needed to develop effective adaptation response strategies will become more recognizable and manageable, not only within the KRW, but worldwide.
