[The Arctic as a polar region is particularly intensely affected by climate change: During the last decades, surface air temperatures in this area have risen twice as fast as the mean global rate, with dramatic consequences for the Arctic environment. A recent scientific assessment held in its...
[The earth’s climate is changing rapidly. The global temperature is rising “at a rate unprecedented in the experience of modern human society” and scientific research reveals that global warming will even accelerate over the next 100 years, causing physical, ecological, social, and economic...
[The previous chapter showed that the Arctic Region is subject to massive transformations, triggered by climate change that affects the region with an intensity not experienced in any other part of the world. The resulting changes arguably represent the greatest challenge for the legal regime...
