@ccadapt policy impact on major Arctic reports
Two major reports were released this week in which Arctic research by the @ccadapt team figures strongly. Firstly, the UKs Environmental Audit Committee released its Changing Arctic Report, assessing the relevance of Arctic change to the UK, and examining the sufficiency of UK policy and research focusing on the region. The teams community based research and studies assesses the current state of knowledge underpins a call to scale up social science and interdisciplinary Arctic research in the UK, building upon oral evidence given by James in July. Secondly, in Canada, the Senate’s Report of the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans “When every minute counts” assesses maritime search and rescue in Canada, and makes a number of recommendations for the Arctic, rooted in the teams’ longstanding focus on emergency response and testimony given by Dylan Clark to Senate in the spring.
