The Arctic under pressure
Man-made change in the Arctic and the role of Switzerland
The Arctic is suffering particularly badly from climate change and pollution. While the Arctic "thaw" threatens the livelihoods of indigenous peoples, industrialized countries see it as an opportunity for new economic activity. But the changes in the Arctic are also having a global impact. Therefore, preservation of the Arctic eco- and climate systems is essential for sustainable development outside the Arctic - also in Switzerland.
