The report is organized in thematic sections, each reviewing the most relevant scientific literature published in recent years. Each section was written by a group of authors independent of WWF and was reviewed by an expert scientist in the respective field. A summary, based on recommendations from the reviewers, highlights the most prominent developments in the Arctic during a period when several key arctic systems have experienced more rapid change than anticipated.
A conclusion section by Martin Sommerkorn and Neil Hamilton of WWF's International Arctic Programme, interprets the relevance of the main findings for arctic and global policymakers, and outlines a road forward for arctic environmental protection.
