Webinar series in the Spring 2021: Arctic bilateral networking events for climate adaptation researchers

The ACAF project aims to promote international cooperation between Arctic adaptation researchers and authorities, to prepare new climate resilience, and to spread Arctic climate resilience expertise.

For this purpose, the project organizes a series of networking workshops with climate change adaptation researchers from different Arctic countries in the Spring 2021.

With the networking workshops, our aim is to create and strengthen existing networks around Arctic climate change adaptation related research and other projects. The workshops are bilateral online events, where Arctic researchers can introduce their climate change adaptation projects and get to meet other researchers in their field. Also authorities and NGOs working on climate adaptation in the Arctic are welcome to attend. After the bilateral webinar series, thematic workshops will be organized in the Autumn 2021.

All workshops take place online, using Zoom. All webinars will be in English, but interpretation between Russian and English is available for the workshop with Russia.

Participation links to the events will be sent to registered participants.


Call for presentations is now open!

We welcome short (5-10 min) presentations from researchers, NGOs, indigenous organizations, authorities etc. on their recent or ongoing projects on Arctic climate change adaptation. Please suggest a presentation topic in the registration form. We will notify all accepted presenters shortly and send instructions. All presenters are asked to send their presentation slides beforehand (see deadlines in the registration forms) for technical reasons.
