ICARPIII Final Report.
Rapid transformations occurring in the Arctic are
affecting the entire Earth system, its climate and weather
extremes through increased temperatures and the continuing
loss of sea ice cover, glacier retreat and changing snow
and permafrost conditions. In addition, emerging economic
and geopolitical interests in the Arctic have established
the region as a larger player within the global context, with
potentially significant local effects. It is important to consider
the existence of ‘multiple Arctics’ in the context of
these changes. While there are many common challenges
and priorities facing the Arctic region as a whole, local contexts,
including political and governance regimes, socioeconomic
conditions, and cultures can vary substantially
within and across Arctic regions.
