Global Climate Risks Platform

Speaking Science to Policy

The fate of the Arctic and Antarctic regions will determine the fate of humanity. 

The Arctic is the control center for global climate risks and for climate risk mitigation. Understanding and incorporating insights from Arctic change into policy decision-making is critical to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the potential cascading effects of climate change, enabling more effective risk management and mitigation strategies at regional and global levels.

The Policy Hub of the Global Climate Risks Platform is a bridge between scientific insights and actionable policy.

The unravelling poles
is a global threat.

The polar regions are the control center for our climate system. Currently, the polar regions are warming four times faster than the global rate. Polar change translates into extreme pressures on food and water security in the rest of the world, heat stress in cities and climate vulnerable regions, more extreme weather, and supply chain disruptions.
