CLINF Stakeholder Workshop

When: 3 December 2018 at 7:00pm - 5 December 2018 at 12:00pm

Where: Abisko Scientific Research Station (near Kiruna), Sweden

CLINF researchers interact with societal groups and authorities from the Northern region.

Stakeholders from Nuuk to Yakutsk representing municipalities, regional governments, authorities (concerned with public health, trade, environment, agriculture), trade organisations, ethnic and other societal groups were invited to discuss with CLINF researchers, who presented interim results regarding changes in the pressure from infectious diseases and their impact on Northern societies. CLINF was also seeking feedback on the design and contents of the CLINF geographical information system. CLINF GIS is intended as an online stakeholder platform for sharing data on climate-sensitive infections and as a tool supporting the adaptation to societal challenges from such infectious diseases.

A summary of the workshop discussions as well as all CLINF presentations (Appendix 1A, Appendix 1B) are available now.
