European Arctic regional actors are involved in creating future paths of social and economic development

European Arctic regional actors are involved in creating future paths of social and economic development

Participatory scenario workshops have allowed researchers to discover the views of local people in the Arctic region.

The extent to which the inhabitants of the Arctic region will adapt to climate change will depend on the effects of the change on the environment and on livelihoods. It will also depend on local and global social, economic and technological development. Participatory scenario workshops have allowed researchers to discover the views of local actors regarding the threats and opportunities associated with changes.
