Water Information and Water Security in the Arctic
2015 (English)In: The New Arctic / [ed] B. Evengård, J. Nymand Larsen, Ø. Paasche, Springer, 2015, 225-238 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Water is common to many environmental changes that are currently observed in the Arctic. To manage environmental change, and related water security challenges that are rising in the Arctic, adequate water information and monitoring is critical. Although water information systems have been deteriorating in the Arctic, there are still opportunities to combine existing data to inform policy decisions on how to manage water security. Furthermore, implementing a set of water security indicators can help identify areas of concern within the region. However, accessible climate change information is not always relevant for the scales of policymaking. In addition, improved representation of water on land in climate models is needed to better inform adaptation.
