Climate Change and Its Impacts in Norway (NORKLIMA)
The primary objective of the NORKLIMA programme is to generate vital new knowledge about the climate system, about climate trends in the past, present and future, and about the direct and indirect impacts of climate change on the natural environment and society, as a basis for
adaptive responses by society.
Secondary objectives include:
The climate system: Improving understanding of climate change both globally and
Effects on the physical environment: Enhancing knowledge about the effects of climate change on Norway’s physical environment, including its effects on the built environment.
Effects on biotic systems: Identifying and quantifying the effects of climate change on marine, limnic and terrestrial ecosystems.
Effects on society: Identifying regions and sectors that may be particularly vulnerable to climate change over the next 30-50 years, and providing input for a national strategy for adaptation to projected climate change.
