The Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) is a government agency which conducts scientific research and environmental monitoring in Arctic regions including the Norwegian Arctic, as well as Antarctica. Their research programmes are essential in order to help us understand environmental changes in the polar regions. Researchers spend most of their time in the field collecting data to help improve current climate models and provide a better understanding of future climate change.
The Institute also advises Norwegian authorities on matters concerning polar environmental management, and runs research stations in both the Arctic and Antarctic. The NPI outline how collaborations between nations with an interest in climate change and the Arctic is essential in order to give enhanced results with global benefits.
