See the latest Arctic report card by NOAA.

The Province of Quebec organized a Permafrost Degradation workshop in Quebec City, April 19 and 20, 2012, just after the Regional Coordinators' meeting to enable the regions to exchange experiences and know-how.

The Northern Forum's Flood Working Group, concerned with severe climate change impacts, has now become the Water and Climate Change Working Group, dealing not only with flooding but other aspects such as coastal erosion, wildfires, permafrost melting etc.
