Arctic: Perspectives on Climate Change and Food Insecurity in Nuvanut
Using a single case study of food insecurity in the Arctic, multi-disciplinary panelists will theorise root causes and effects of food insecurity and climate change, and assess potential solutions. Aiming our attention at one empirical example will facilitate a focus on theoretical explanations with the goal of sharpening analysis and pinpointing what kinds of actions must be taken now.
