CHARTER is an ambitious effort to advance adaptive capacity of Arctic communities to climatic and biodiversity changes. This is done through state-of-the-art synthesis based on thorough data collection, analysis and modelling of Arctic change with major socio-economic implications and feedbacks. To achieve this goal, the project will combine expertise from Earth System sciences and biodiversity studies within a Social-Ecological Systems framework and strongly participatory approach.
