Are weather and climate events threatening your community?

Does your community have a vision of what relocation looks like?

Does your community experience erosion?

What is an erosion? The potential for erosion exists wherever land and water connect. Erosion, as part of a natural process, does not become a problem until it starts to affect something of intrinsic or quantifiable value. In the past, communities simply moved away from erosion sites as necessary. As communities became tied to the land through infrastructure development, it became more difficult to move away from erosion sites, and residents have tried to combat erosion on their own until the problem grew so severe that external assistance was needed. – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Alaska District Study Findings and Technical Report, 2009
