Arctic Climate Change Affects the Whole World

Arctic (15)

Many of you are probably aware of the fact that Finland holds the Chairmanship in the Arctic Council 2017-2019. The Arctic Council is the leading intergovernmental forum for addressing issues concerning and related to the Arctic Region. (U.S. Department of State – Diplomacy in Action – Arctic Council). The Arctic Council was established by the Ottawa Declaration in 1996, and its members consist of the eight countries with territory above the Arctic Circle: Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Russia and the United States. (U.S. Department of State – Diplomacy in Action – Arctic Council).

According to the Ministry For Foreign Affairs of Finland, Finland during its Chairmanship in the Arctic Council will strengthen the Arctic cooperation and emphasize the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN sustainable development goals.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute, on the other hand, highlights the already available expertise of the Arctic region in Finland, stating that climate change is more rapid in the Arctic region compared to the rest of the world.
