Tittel

Critical Aspects of Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change in the Nortern Regions

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Climate change is documented to have consequences for communities and ecosystems in the North. The International Polar Year brought new knowledge on how these changes shape vulnerability in socio-ecological systems. The project Critical Aspects of Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change in Northern Regions will build on the legacy of the IPY consortium CAVIAR, and other NORKLIMA projects. The project will focus on the adaptive capacity of communities, sectors and industries towards changes in the social-ecological systems, including climate change. The main objective is to provide new insights to the critical determinants of adaptive capacity to changes in the social-ecological system in the north. It will provide new knowledge on how changes in ecosystem services affect various users, and their adaptive capacity to cope with changes. Research has revealed that a lack of focused adaptation policies raises critical questions about the consequences for the adaptive capacity of natural resource management and industries. The project will therefore scrutinize how and to what degree policy address and implement adaptation to climate change across sectors. Communities and industries in the North will also have to adapt to climate change mitigation, and this project will study how climate change mitigation shapes their adaptive capacity. Climate change and gender has not been addressed to any extent in Arctic Research. This project focuses on the socio-economic interplay between gender and the effects of climate change, and will contribute to understanding how gender matters in determining adaptive capacity. The project is fundamentally inter-disciplinary and utilizes scientific and local knowledge. It will advance theory development in the social-ecological systems field through combining CAVIAR and SES frameworks . The project will provide policy relevant knowledge that can be used for strengthening the adaptive capacity of Northern societies.
