Climate changes are here, and they are making an impact on 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. Rajendra K. Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), prepared a video address on the occasion of the inauguration of NORD-STAR on 24 May 2011. He emphasised the importance of NORD-STAR's work and its innovative approach.
