Climate Change Resilience in Small Communities in the Nordic Countries

CliCNord is funded by Nordforsk and examines how small rural communities understand their own situation in the face of climate change, how they handle adverse events and build capacity, and under what circumstances they need help from the established system and civil society organisations.

Case studies explore different hazards affecting local communities across the Nordic countries as a direct consequence of climate change, including coastal flooding due to storm surge, cloudbursts, wildfires, temperature extremes, landslides, slush avalanches, flash floods, and storms. The UW partner is Matthias Kokorsch, who is leading the Icelandic case study focused on avalanches.
