International workshop: Global Change in the Arctic and Co-production of Knowledge
Inuit on Ice, Arctic
This international experts workshop will assess the impacts of the recent accelerating physical, biological and social transformations generated by growing stress from global climate change, and will mobilize responses so as to adequately inform adaptation policies and practice.
This international experts workshop will contribute to strengthening the Sustaining Arctic Observing Network (SAON), organized under the auspices of the Arctic Council, by reinforcing community-based and social science components, as a complement to the existing bio-physical monitoring capacities. The aim is to bring together a select group of natural and social scientists, and indigenous peoples, from across the circumpolar region to enhance collaborative indigenous-scientific work on global change impacts, monitoring and adaptation, and thus advance thinking on the emerging paradigm of knowledge co-production.
