"Objective: Climate variability and change, and increases in UV radiation, have become important issues in the Arctic over the past few decades. It has become imperative to examine possible future impacts on the environment and its living resources, on human health, and on relevant economic sectors. The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment is expected to lead to useful information for the nations of the Arctic region, their economy, resources, and peoples. ACIA Products: Three major volumes will be completed by 2004 for submission to the Arctic Council through AMAP, CAFF, and IASC; they are a peer-reviewed scientific volume, a synthesis document summarizing results, and a policy document providing recommendations for coping and adaptation measures." /.../
