Arctic climate change

Project*

 


The Arctic is one of the four regions of the world, classified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as the most vulnerable to climate change. The rise in temperature, the melting of ice, permafrost can have a significant negative impact on the global climate. Currently, the international community recognizes the need to jointly solve the natural and climatic problems of the Arctic. The Russian Federation as the main arctic power should become the coordinator of this process.

Issues for discussion:

  • International cooperation to address climate change in the Arctic
