Russia's melting permafrost
The nomadic Nenets live in western Siberia, a region that's been badly affected by climate change. Temperatures in this area are predicted to rise dramatically in coming decades. Experts believe that global warming is adversely affecting the health of the indigenous Nenets, who appear increasingly vulnerable to infection. In a local project, researchers are investigating ways of helping the nomads and developing strategies to cope with the dangers posed by climate change.
