Excerpt from Progress Report: "The
goal of the project is to build capacity among
Alaska Tribes to take effective
action to clearly identify and address their concerns about radionuclides,
other types of contamination, and adverse changes in the environment.
The University of Alaska's Institute of Social and Economic Research
and the Alaska Native Science Commission are collaborating
to implement the
project. We began work in the fall of 1996 under a grant from Region
10. Although the current three year grant funded
by ORIA through Region 10
formally began in July 1998, an overlap between the previous grant and
the current grant meant that we actually started work under the current
grant in January 1999."
