Abstract: This report sets the scene for exploring further how the JRC could help with mobilising all relevant knowledge to tame climate change (and other environmental change) impacts in the Arctic that affect, not only the Arctic populations, but also many other populations of the planet. In that sense, the report maps communities, livelihoods, institutions and actors in the Arctic. Based on the reviewed academic literature the report offered a thorough discussion about traditional knowledge meanings, and investigates political and policy representations of traditional knowledge in different International and EU documents. Finally, it looked at instances of engagement of the Arctic people in the governance of the Arctic, identifying both institutional and substantial lacunas in mobilising experiential knowledge into governance processes characterised by high complexity and uncertainty.
