  • New project creates tools for monitoring the Arctic and adapting to the changing environment 2021-06-30
    The European Union will provide 15 million euros from the Horizon 2020 Programme to fund the Arctic PASSION project for the period 2021 to 2025. A consortium of 35 partners will promote the integration of international environmental observing systems for the Arctic and improve the tailoring of these systems to the needs of various user groups ranging from local inhabitants to academia through to industry and decision-makers.
  • New framework provides insights into cross-border climate change impacts 2021-06-24
    Climate change impacts such as droughts, floods and storms may have consequences that extend to locations and jurisdictions far distant from their initial impact. Such cross-border impacts can cause severe disruption to societies and livelihoods. The CASCADES project is investigating the risks associated with such impacts for the European Union as well as policy options for responding to them.
  • Butterflies and moths have difficulty adjusting to a rapidly changing climate 2021-06-10
    Climate change exerts great pressure for change on species and biodiversity. A recent study conducted by the University of Helsinki and the Finnish Environment Institute indicates that the few moth and butterfly species (Lepidoptera) capable of adjusting to a changing climate by advancing their flight period and moving further north have fared the best in Finland. In contrast, roughly 40% of Lepidoptera species have not been able to respond in either way, seeing their populations decline.
