A vast and rapid transformation of the Arctic and surrounding areas is taking place. Climatic, environmental, and socioeconomic drivers may interact, meaning decision making in the Arctic is difficult and uncertain. Some changes may increase existing pressures in the Arctic, while others may bring new opportunities. The AFI takes a holistic perspective integrating research, policy, business, and society.
