This project evaluates the connections between climate change impacts and health in Bristol Bay communities. Climate change impacts were assessed through the lens of public health, with an eye towards the potential effects on disease, injury, food and water security, and mental health. Three focal communities were included in this assessment: Nondalton, a lake community, Levelock, a river community, and Pilot Point, a coastal community. The resulting assessment reports will be used to assist focal communities, as well as neighboring communities, in addressing climate-change related issues.

Over the last 75 years, Puerto Rico transformed from an agricultural economy to anindustrialized economy and now faces economic stagnation. These transitions have directimplications for Puerto Rico’s environment, water resources, and the health of its population.The island of Puerto Rico is 8,700 square kilometers, made up of 78 municipios (municipalities)with a population of 3,548,397 people, and rapidly declining.1,2 Puerto Rico’s geography andgeology present a diverse set of challenges to meet the water demands of its people and ensuresafe and sustainable water supply.
The identification of heavy metals such as mercury, and highly persistent lipophilic anthropogenic contaminants in the circumpolar food chain of all Arctic countries has raised awareness in wildlife scientists, and human health authorities on the need to better understand the possible climate-mediated influence on atmospheric and ocean transport mechanisms on the exposure of biota, including humans, in the Arctic. Certain contaminants are known to interfere with immune response in both humans and wildlife.Researchers developed a village climate and health impact assessment tool; identified climate change vulnerabilities for the Native Village of Selawik and developed a climate adaptation strategy; developed biomonitoring...
