Join us live at DAVOS22 (including livestream) or download our Risk Briefing to learn more about the global impacts of the climate crisis in the Arctic.

EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS
Higher than normal temperatures contributed to wildfires in the western US. Colder than normal temperatures were found in middle to eastern Canada, in the North Atlantic south of Greenland, and in the Mediterranean and Middle East.
FOOD & WATER INSECURITY
Arctic warming disrupts the jet stream. Now, research suggests that changes to the jet stream heighten the risk of simultaneous crop failures in multiple grain-producing parts of the world.
SEA LEVEL RISE
The Arctic region is warming at least 3 times faster than the global average. This striking and well-documented change is driving such global effects as sea level rise from the loss of the Greenland ice sheet, and additional warming due to permafrost carbon emissions.
HEAT STRESS
Temperature anomalies illustrate continued global and amplified Arctic warming. We saw heat waves in India with the warmest temperatures in 121 years, and in California with implications for water security.
