The goals of the second volume of the AHDR – Arctic Human Development Report: Regional Processes and Global Linkages – are to provide an update to the first AHDR (2004) in terms of an assessment of the state of Arctic human development; to highlight the major trends and changes unfolding related to the various issues and thematic areas of human development in the Arctic over the past decade; and, based on this assessment, to identify policy relevant conclusions and key gaps in knowledge, new and emerging Arctic success stories.



Community Viability and Adaptation

This chapter emphasizes the linkages between sub-systems within communities, and how they interact and impact each other with different implications for future development of communities. The task here is to focus on evidence of linkages and feedbacks between social structures, socio-economic conditions, health and well-being and demography, as well as some of the overarching geopolitical, physical and biophysical sub-systems and globalization of communities and settlements.
