New booklet on Polar View - Satellite-based monitoring in adapting to climate change

GRID-Arendal wrote and produced a booklet on uses of satellite-based monitoring in adapting to climate change in regions influenced by ice and snow that was released at the UNFCCC Climate Change COP 14 in Poznan, Poland this month . The booklet features case studies on climate change adaptation in marine navigation in ice-infested waters, flood preparedness, hydroelectric generation, and sustaining Arctic indigenous communities.  It  was produced using examples from Polar View, a consortium of public and private sector Earth Observation service providers working through the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security initiative supported by the European Space Agency and a contributor to the Nairobi Work Programme on Climate Change Adaptation.
