The CIGSAC aimed to examine the role of international governance mechanisms (or regimes) and international actors active in the Arctic in climate change policy. This is a very unique perspective as the climate change policy is mainly driven by global and national levels, with coping issues many times addressed also in community level. The need for this research project was shown by the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA), a huge international research project that confirmed what had already been indicated by the Inter-governmental panel on climate change 2001 report: the climate change has impacted the Arctic already from the 1970’s and the region will experience the most dramatic consequences from climate change.
