Abstract [en]

Climate change is often framed as a global issue that should be managed at the global level through international agreements. But with only slow progress in the global climate negotiation, questions of scale are becoming increasingly salient. Are there alternative arenas for climate governance? If so, how do these arenas relate to political dynamics at the global level? This paper discusses some potentials and limitations of climate governance at the international regional level based on a case study of an assessment of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic. Here the regional arena brought new actors into climate knowledge production and policy and an increased emphasis on the complexity of social and cultural impacts of climate change among indigenous people. Meanwhile, state policy positions were more or less locked by the same political dynamics as in the global climate negotiations. The dynamics of the process is discussed in terms of the politics of scale.
