Clim-ATIC

Climate Change - Adapting to The Impacts, by Communities in Northern Peripheral Regions

Clim-ATIC’s overall objective

The project will establish a sustainable, self-financing delivery mechanism, in association with the University of the Arctic, to provide information, training and advice on climate change adaptation to communities, small businesses, and local administrations across the Northern Periphery.

This comprehensive, cross-sectoral trans-national project will result in the best possible understanding of all issues associated with climate change adaptation

at a community level.

Clim-ATIC

Climate Change - Adapting to The Impacts, by Communities in Northern Peripheral Regions

5 participating regions with similar climate change impact issues

Lapland, Finland

County of Vasterbotten, Sweden (and Åre)

Flora, Sogn og Fjordane, Norway

Sisimiut, Greenland

Highlands and Islands, Scotland

“A European approach is necessary to ensure proper coordination and the efficiency of policies that address the impacts of climate change.”

The EC Green paper ‘Adapting to climate change in Europe- options for EU action’ (2007)

Clim-ATIC

Climate Change - Adapting to The Impacts, by Communities in Northern Peripheral Regions

Climate change adaptation cuts across all sectors and political levels.

Clim-ATIC will focus on 4 key priority themes for the Northern Periphery

risk and response management

sustainable transport

tourism opportunities

local sustainable energy

WP 4

Planning, supporting, managing, evaluating and extracting lessons from 12 adaptation projects across the Northern Periphery with a strong emphasis on local economic benefits

“Building adaptation capacity involves creating information and conditions that enable adaptation actions to take place and delivering adaptation actions that will help to reduce vulnerability to climate risks or exploit opportunities ”

‘Climate Change – the UK Programme’ (2006)

slide11

Establish a Northern Periphery Community Climate Change

Adaptation Information, Training, and Advice service

Clim-ATIC

WP 5

We will establish an affordable, accessible, relevant and up-to-date service for local communities, businesses, entrepreneurs, administrations and politicians across the entire Northern Periphery.

The University of the Arctic will be the initial framework for this service; the aim is to have a network with a node in each Northern Periphery region.

“There is an obvious need to strengthen policy relevant research and development relating to the impacts of climate change and adaptation”

Finland’s National Adaptation Strategy (2005)
