Change — Adapting to The Impacts, by Communities in Northern
What is Clim-ATIC?
Final and intermediate objectives
Activities in regions:
Clim-ATIC’s overall objective after three years is to establish a sustainable, self-financing service that will provide information, training and advice to communities, small businesses, and local administrations across the Northern Periphery who wish to significantly increase their capacity to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
This service will be established and delivered in collaboration with the University of the Arctic, an existing cooperative network of 109 universities, colleges, and other organisations across the Arctic.Intermediate objectives
To achieve this overall objective, the project will undertake a number of key activities over the three-year period subdivided into five separate work packages, with communities and community sector stakeholders across all five participating regions of the Northern Periphery, to build the necessary knowledge.
Five work packages will jointly contribute to the overall objective. Work packages 2 and 3 will develop the capacity for adaptation, work package 4 will evaluate the realities of delivering adaptation actions, and work package 5 will bring all the lessons together and create a sustainable service, providing information, training and advice relating to community climate change adaptation.
OutcomesThe knowledge gained will initially be made available to all those participating, and then to non-participating communities and stakeholders, through a variety of regional and international dissemination events throughout the project and, in the long term, through the establishment of a formal service. This will ensure a high quality in the content and delivery of information, and the capacity to remain abreast of emerging knowledge relating to climate change, likely impacts, and opportunities for adaptation.
