Climate change poses many challenges to the circumpolar region and those who live there, but it may also present great opportunities. Access to relevant and usable information is essential for people to adapt to climate change and take advantage of the potential opportunities. Unfortunately, this information is often scattered, does not always exist in useful forms, or is difficult to access.
The Arctic Adaptation Exchange is a website that provides people with practitioner-focused information resources and facilitates the exchange of knowledge on climate change adaptation in the Arctic. It was built as a web portal for the Arctic Council under contract to the Yukon Government’s Climate Change Secretariat and as part of the Canadian commitment to the Council during its two-year term as Chair.
