About the program

The Climate and Society programme links Ilisimatusarfik/University of Greenland and the Greenland Climate Research Centre (GCRC) and focuses on issues of pressing contemporary concern for society and environment in Greenland. Our research and teaching is at the intersection of social science, climate science and public policy. An important aspect of our work is concern with understanding climate change within the context of other changes and societal and economic transformations in Greenland, including resource development and extractive industries.

Rapid social, economic and demographic change, resource management and resource development, anti-hunting campaigns, trade barriers and conservation policies all have significant implications for human security and sustainable livelihoods in the Arctic. In many cases, climate change magnifies existing societal, political, economic, legal, institutional and environmental challenges that people experience and negotiate in their everyday lives.
