Climate change affects the ice and water masses in polar regions, causing change in the extent of ice sheets
and caps. This will have cascading effects on regional bio-physical systems causing global climatic
feedbacks. In the Arctic, the socio-economic systems will also be negatively affected.* To cope
with decreasing ice stability and safety, people in the Arctic are making use of indigenous knowledge to
navigate new routes for hunting and travelling.**
