From December 11 to 15, Nereus Program Fellow Tiff-Annie Kenny will be attending the 2017 Arctic Network Meeting in Québec City, where 1500 leading Arctic researchers, graduate students, Northern community representatives, government and industry partners and stakeholders will convene to discuss global challenges and opportunities arising from climate change and modernization in the circum-Arctic.
“The Arctic is experiencing unprecedented change of its sea and terrestrial ice, permafrost and ecosystems under the triple pressures of climate change, industrialization and modernization. The impacts of these pressures can be seen on food and energy security, shipping, sovereignty, northern community health and well-being, and sustainable development and resource exploitation. All these issues have brought the Arctic to the forefront of national and international agendas.”
