Arctic Climate Change, Economy and Society

Arctic Climate Change Economy and Society (ACCESS) is a European Project supported within the Ocean of Tomorrow call of the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme.

Arctic climate change will have significant impacts on both marine ecosystems and human activities in the Arctic, which in turn will have important socio-economic implications for Europe. ACCESS will evaluate Arctic climate change scenarios and their impact on specific economic sectors and human activities over the next decades. Particular attention will be given to environmental sensitivities and sustainability in the Arctic domain. ACCESS will also engage in close cooperation with indigenous people and other key stakeholders by means of a Stakeholders / End-users Forum and an Advisory Board.
