Social-Ecological Resilience and Inuit Child Health: What Does the Future Hold? (pp. 469-476) $45.00
Authors:  Karen Morrison and David Waltner-Toews
This paper looks at remote Inuit communities as coupled
social-ecological systems, and places emphasis on how a
social-ecological systems approach to studying children’s
health can shed light on the state of that relationship to date,
and on interventions to support the human platform on
which future adaptive strategies in remote communities will
need to build. In this paper, the resilience of socialecological
systems is discussed in relation to their
implications for Inuit child health. The ability to identify,
react and evaluate the reaction to surprises while also
maintaining essential services is a constant challenge. The
SES approach creates a framework for discussing child
health in the larger context of social-ecological change. By
drawing attention to the challenges that face Inuit children
both socially and ecologically it is hoped that additional
attention will be paid to the key aspects of SES resilience
that will enhance their individual and collective health and
wellbeing as well as their adaptive capacity in the face of
climate change.
