Climate changes are here. Climate changes impact ecosystems and human lives around the world. The Nordic Centre of Excellence NORD-STAR pursues the vision of a Nordic region that can adapt to the inevitable consequences of climate change and the unintended consequences of climate policy. We do this by making a novel contribution to the Nordic adaptation knowledge base that can help public and private decision makers at all levels adapt to climate changes in a sustainable manner.
Dr. Pachauri addressing the importance of NORD-STAR:
Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), offered this video address on the occasion of the inauguration of NORD-STAR on 24 May 2011. Professor Pachauri emphasised NORD-STAR's importance and innovative approach.
