The Arctic is changing rapidly, in ways that could dramatically affect people’s lives and ecosystems. The Arctic Resilience Report is a science-based assessment that aims to better understand these changes. Photo: S-E. Arndt/Azote
Its goals are to:
- Identify the potential for shocks and large shifts in ecosystems services that affect human well-being in the Arctic.
- Analyze how different drivers of change interact in ways that affect the ability of ecosystems and human populations to withstand shocks, adapt or transform.
- Evaluate strategies for communities and governments to adapt.
The Arctic Resilience Report was approved as an Arctic Council project at the Senior Arctic Official’s meeting in November 2011, following a scoping workshop held in Stockholm in September. It is led by the Stockholm Environment Institute and Stockholm Resilience Centre. It builds on collaboration with other Arctic countries and indigenous peoples in the region, as well as several organisations that engages with studies about a changing Arctic.
Chapters 3 and 4 of the report are based on documented regime shifts (Ch 3) submitted to the Regime Shift Database and 25 case studies from around the Arctic used in a cross-case analysis (Ch 4). Both the methods and the outcomes are provided in the report.
