Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic - status report.
Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP)
"The overall objective of The Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic (AACA) project is to enable more informed, timely and responsive policy and decision making in a rapidly changing Arctic. The mandate of AACA part C, led by AMAP, is to “produce information to assist local decision makers and stakeholders in three pilot regions in developing adaptation tools and strategies .....”. AACA made good progress in 2014 across the three pilot regions, see map page 5. There have been one or more regional workshops in each of the three regions and two workshops at the Integration Team level (i.e., including all regions). Author teams are largely in place in all three regions (not all regions have fully populated their authors teams) and cross-regional thematic meetings are being conducted for the scenarios, impact assessment, and drivers author teams. There are differences in status for the three regions, but the status has improved since the last report to the AMAP working group in September 2014." /.../
