Resilience, adaptations and pathways for actions

ReiGN is a Nordic Centre of Excellence, funded by NordForsk, that covers a wide range of expertise, spanning from genomic, evolutionary theory, life history theory, ecology, natural resource management, archaeology, anthropology, animal breeding, conservation biology, to bio-economy, governance, law and legislation. The overall aim is to understand how climate change and other processes in the Arctic will affect reindeer husbandry in Fennoscandia and how the industry can adapt to these drivers.
