Abstract [en]

With the launching of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) in 2000, the Arctic became the first international region for a full-scale analysis of the impacts of climate change. This illustrates a shift in framing of climate change from being mainly a global issue to increased emphasis on regional and local scale impacts and processes. The purpose of this study is to analyze what factors influenced the framing of climate change in the ACIA. Based on an in-depth study of the ACIA process, the presentation examines the interplay of international regimes in structuring climate knowledge production and policy. It shows that global regimes such as the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were important for the timing, structure and dynamics of the ACIA process, but that the norms and structures of the regional Arctic regime played a role in redefining what knowledge was to be included. Drawing on international relations theory and insights about the co-production of science and political order, the presentation points to the need for analyzing how the interplay between global and regional international regimes can facilitate or hinder new knowledge about environmental change.
