Project Focus and Goals: The ARCPATH project seeks to combine improved regional
climate predictions with enhanced understanding of environmental, societal, and
economic interactions in order to supply new knowledge on Arctic “pathways to action”.
This will be achieved through extensive cross-disciplinary collaboration including:
climatology (regional and global modelling; dynamic downscaling; historical
climatology); environmental science; environmental economics; oceanography and
cryosphere research; marine and fisheries biology; fisheries management; anthropology;
governance systems; human eco-dynamics; and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK).
Drawing on these separate but interlinking disciplines will enable ARCPATH to form a
truly synergistic Nordic Centre of Excellence where the overarching goal is to foster
responsible and sustainable development in northern communities.
