Commercial vessel traffic through the Bering Strait is expected to increase in the coming years. Henry Huntington of the Pew Charitable Trusts will explore the role of reduced sea ice, the economics of shipping, and the potential for effective governance of maritime activity in the area. While uncertainties abound, there are several steps that can be taken--some already underway--to promote safe operations and cultural and environmental protection for the Bering Strait and its peoples.

Alaska Policy & Climate Adaption Webinar 
Strategies for Strengthening Alaska Native Village Roles in Natural Resource Management
Barrett Ristroph, Ph.D. Student, University of Hawaii
Tuesday, 5 January 2016 
10:00-11:15 a.m. AKST

More information, including a registration link available at:

Unlike tribes in other U.S. jurisdictions, Alaska's tribes do not have sovereignty (or direct ownership in many cases) over their traditional lands and natural resources on which they depend for their nutritional and cultural survival. In place of treaties ensuring hunting and fishing rights, and they are subject to complex hunting laws that limit their ability to adapt hunting practices to changes in species distribution. Many Alaska Native Villages are grappling with the combined impacts of climate and social change. This Webinar will identify and evaluates a range of tools that could help Alaska Native Villages increase their influence over wildlife and land management decisions, including following international bodies.

Rick Thoman (Climate Science and Services Manager, Environmental and Scientific Services Division, National Weather Service Alaska Region) will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review forecast tools and finish up with the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for the upcoming season. 

Rick will also present a "Feature-of-the-Month" special addition in which each month he will highlight a topic relevant to the particular month.
