Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic (AACA).
"During the coming decades, a number of changes across the Arctic are projected to occur with high probability and scientific confidence that pose unprecedented challenges and emerging opportunities to human societies, their economic foundations and government institutions. A key challenge in the Arctic includes having appropriate adaptation strategies and action to deal with multiple environmental stressors that include, for example, climate variability and change, human demographic shifts, industrialization, and increasing demands for energy and natural resource extraction. Changes associated with these stressors will have significant socio-economic and policy implications for all Arctic nations, their peoples and the conservation and protection of the Arctic environment" /.../
