IPY 2012 

The IPY 2012 Conference was held in Montreal from April 22 to 27, 2012. It represented perhaps the largest gathering of polar scholars and scientists to date. Moreover, in several parallel sessions, the issues of climate change and health figured prominently.

The following list of sessions and presentations should give a fairly representative snapshot of the recent academic research that took place across the circumpolar world in the area of climate change, health, and adaptation. The full conference program can be found at IPY2012.



1.4.2  Human health and well-being, including food security in a changing Arctic

In conjunction with the 2012 Annual General Meeting, a panel of experts convened at IPY 2012 in Montreal to discuss global health and circumpolar perspectives. Supported by ArcticNet.
