Action Pledge: Adaptation in the Arctic and SIDS
Many Strong Voices Programme

UNEP/GRID-Arendal is coordinating the Many Strong Voices Programme which brings together a unique group of partners from the Arctic and the SIDS. The vision of the Many Strong Voices programme is to ensure the well-being, security and sustainability of coastal communities in the Arctic and SIDS in response to ongoing and anticipated climate change. The long-term goal of the Many Strong Voices programme is to bring together local, national and regional stakeholders in these regions to share and enhance knowledge and expertise about, and to collaboratively devise strategic solutions to, the challenges confronting coastal communities in these regions as a result of climate change.

This pledge relates to the area of work on Methods and Tools.
