Arctic Initiative, Belfer Center, Harvard Kennedy School
Founded in 2017, the Arctic Initiative at the Belfer Center addresses the challenges and opportunities being created by rapid climate change in the Arctic. It does so by (i) integrating insights from cutting-edge scientific research and Indigenous knowledge to improve understanding of the pace of climate change there and its implications inside and outside the region; (ii) working with local, regional, national, and international leaders on applying the best current understandings of Arctic climate change, and of options for addressing it, to the development and implementation of appropriate policies; and (iii) helping to train a new generation of interdisciplinary Arctic experts and Arctic-savvy leaders motivated and equipped to carry this work forward.
