Consequences of interacting climate and non-climate drivers on Arctic biodiversity

Date/time: December 3, 10:30-12:00

Room: San Siro 1

Session organizer: Jon Fuglestad, Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP), Robbie Andrew, Centre for Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO) and Marianne Kroglund, Norwegian Environment Agency

The Arctic is undergoing rapid and fundamental change. Recent decades have seen rising temperatures and reduced sea ice. Overlaid on these climatic shifts are changes in other factors such as resource demand, globalisation, transportation, economic development, and demographics, factors which are to varying degrees themselves affected by the changing climate.

In this session we will present ongoing projects that address societal, environmental and climate changes, and how we can increase our understanding of how the global climate, environmental and socio-economic drivers interplay and affect nature and humans in the Arctic.

Session theme: Understanding cumulative effects and managing impacts
