Alaskan Native Villages Threatened by Erosion $89.00
Editors: Russell M. Trevino
Book Description:
Through a process of stakeholder meetings, review of previous reports and extensive correspondence with communities, 178 Alaska communities were found to have reported erosion problems. This book presents the results of the Alaska Baseline Erosion Assessment (BEA), a combination of study efforts specifically funded by the U.S. Congress, and describes how those results were attained. Specifically, this book reports on the flooding and erosion threats that Alaska Native villages currently face, the federal programs that are available to assist villages facing potential disasters, the status of village relocation efforts and how federal assistance to relocating villages is prioritized. This book has been prepared with the intent of providing information to Federal, State, Tribal and local decisionmakers that can assist them in making informed decisions about erosion issues in Alaska and in developing strategies and plans for addressing those issues. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
