A sub-project of the interdisciplinary research project, Climate change, Impacts and Adaptation in the sub-Arctic:

Climate change varies due. The weather and landscape, which in turn affects how people can use the land for their livelihood. Climate change is expected to affect land use in the sub-arctic Lake Torne area, which will cause difficulties for local residents and traders in the area. Although there are measures to mitigate climate change and its effects are short-term need to adapt to current and future conditions.

This sub-project on land use and spatial planning is to gain knowledge of how climate change will affect land use for local residents and traders, their living conditions and livelihoods. The knowledge will be used for working with actors and stakeholders, should develop proposals for the adaptation of planning for future planning.
