Climate and polar research

Climate research will provide knowledge about the climate system and human impact on the climate, what effects climate change has, and how society can cut emissions and adapt to the changes. Polar research will provide increased knowledge for climate and ecosystem understanding as a basis for policy, management and sustainable business development in polar regions.
