Understanding climate and biodiversity changes in the Arctic remains high on international research agendas.

Research activities to be presented and discussed include:

  • Learning from local and indigenous knowledge – understanding fishery impacts and policy needs.
  • The future perspective and societal impact of changes fjords in Greenland and North-Atlantic.
  • Documenting environmental change at Davis Strait, a gateway between the Arctic and subpolar North Atlantic, and understanding impacts on southern Baffin Bay marine ecosystems.
