Melting Permafrost

Learn about the changes happening to permafrost in the Arctic landscape, in this video adapted from the International Institute for Sustainable Development. Alaska Native peoples and Western scientists discuss both the causes of melting and its impact on the ecosystem. The video shows the consequences of erosion, including mudslides and inland lakes being drained of water. An Inuit expresses his uncertainty about the ultimate effect this will have on his community and culture.

This media asset was adapted from "Inuit Observations on Climate Change" by the International Institute for Sustainable Development.
