Please take some time to refer to this invited white paper, titled “Geo-data for risk management in a changing Arctic,” which will be presented at the Arctic Observing Summit 2022 (AOS 2022).
 
Speaking on this occasion, here is a message from WGIC Executive Director Barbara Ryan –
 
Events, such as the AOS, have historically done an excellent job bringing academia, citizen groups, indigenous peoples, non-profit organizations, and the public sector together. AOS is, now, to be commended for opening up its Arctic dialogue to the private sector.
 
WGIC can provide an overview of its members’ existing and planned capabilities through this white paper, thereby ensuring that private-sector capabilities are being leveraged to the greatest extent possible.
 
Time is of the essence, and no single organization, government, or country can solve the climate challenge alone. We must do a better job working across our organizational entities. This effort signals our commitment to ensuring that the most up-to-date technologies and services are understood, accessible, and utilized to address the Arctic’s changing environment.
