Frozen Arctic: Horizon scan of interventions to slow down, halt, and reverse the effects of climate change in the Arctic and northern regions
This short report presents the findings of Phase I of the Frozen Arctic Conservation project, a collaborative undertaking between the Secretariat of the University of the Arctic, GRID-Arendal, and the Arctic Centre/University of Lapland.
The goals of Phase I were:
1. To capture and effectively map out the range of possible interventions that exist or have been proposed to reverse, stabilize, or delay climate change impacts in the northern and Arctic regions for the benefit of the world;
2. To create a standardized evaluation matrix against which possible interventions could be scored;
3. To evaluate possible interventions according to an evaluation matrix in order to gain a preliminary understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each
