2. Early Registration Available
Climate Change in Northern Territories
22-23 August 2013
Akureyri, Iceland

Organizers of the conference entitled, "Climate Change in Northern
Territories: Sharing Experiences, Exploring New Methods, and Assessing
Socio-Economic Impacts," announce that early registration is now
available. The conference, organized by the European Observation Network
(ESPON)/Evidence in a North European Context (ENECON) in cooperation
with the Northern Research Forum (NFR), will convene 22-23 August 2013
in Akureyri, Iceland.

The ENECON project addresses challenges and opportunities facing
territorial development and spatial planning policies, and practices,
particular to the vast territory of the very northern part of Europe.
The goal of the conference is to turn attention to territorial
challenges and the need for future research in the northernmost regions
of Europe and the Arctic; and the challenge of translating scientific
knowledge into action. The conference aims to bring together researchers
who have similar backgrounds but focus on different problems and
different methodological approaches. Regional and local stakeholders as
well as state politicians and policymakers are also target groups for
the conference.

Subthemes of the conference include:

- Territorial socio-economic impacts of climate change,
- Methodologies for assessing socio-economic impact, and
- Adaptation to climate change in regions and local
communities--examining methods and sharing knowledge.

Early registration deadline: 10 July 2013.
