Global Linkages: A graphic look at the changing Arctic

The Arctic region is changing. It is dealing with multiple pressures and drivers of change from both inside and outside the region that are affecting ecosystems, climate and human society. The consequences have knock-on effects at the local, regional and global levels. The pace and extent of change means that the Arctic and the rest of the world will be a very different place in the decades to come. Adapting to the changes is a major challenge for people in the Arctic and beyond. These videos visualize 12 topics centered around climate change, pollution and biodiversity, drawn from on the report Global Linkages: A graphic look at the changing Arctic. It provides visual representations of some of the most prominent changes in the region and how they are linked to the rest of the world.
