Website: Arctic Peoples, Culture, Resilience and Caribou (ACRC)

IPYCaribou.ca – Arctic Peoples, Culture, Resilience and Caribou (ACRC) is a research project for International Polar Year, led by a network of northern Canadian Aboriginal organizations representing Arctic communities. Northern leaders identified the concept of “community resilience” as a priority research focus to build capacity for Arctic community health and sustainability. Central to this study is the assumption that change is dynamic, uneven and unpredictable. Long term socio-ecological health and well-being for Arctic communities, means having the ability to adapt with change by accessing a range of strategies to respond to a variety of potential conditions. The hypothesis guiding the ACRC project is that resilience and adaptive capacity of Arctic communities are based on a variety of common key elements that can be illustrated through an investigation of a series of reciprocal community-natural resource relationships that exist across the North.
