Abstract

Learning about Vilhelmina Kommun Climate, Impacts and Adaptation’ was prepared due to local interest by members of the Vilhelmina Model Forest and Vilhelmina Kommun in understanding more about the climate in their region. Robyn Hooper, a Master’s student from Canada prepared this report with help from the Vilhelmina Model Forest, the Baltic Landscape Project, and the Swedish Forest Agency. This report is part of her Trans-Atlantic Dual Forestry Master’s program and a directed study under the University of British Columbia.

The objective of this project is to provide preliminary information on climate change in the Vilhelmina Kommun (municipality) and Vilhelmina Model Forest that may be used for initiating the dialogue on this issue in the region. It is modeled after the brochure “Climate Change in the Canadian Columbia Basin: Starting the Dialogue” and is guided by previous work in Canada by the Canadian Model Forest Network’s Guidebook for Canadian forest based communities entitled “Pathways to Climate Resilience” (Columbian Basin Trust 2007, Pearce 2011). This work may in turn serve as a template for other model forests or communities in the International Model Forest Network, the Circumboreal Initiative, and the Baltic Landscape Project. For Baltic Landscape the report in particular elevate aspects on how climate change influence on biophysical landscape conditions may affect land use actors, land governance and landscape planning. The project report is a synthesis and overview of current technical knowledge on climate change in the Vilhelmina Kommun, with some additional contributions on historical trends and future projections. More detailed climate data is provided in the Appendix. It is acknowledged that there remain significant gaps in information and extensive research and monitoring are needed in order to fully understand this complex and important issue. Local inhabitants of Vilhelmina are encouraged to think about these findings, and talk with their families and with others in their communities and in their places of work about what can be done individually and together to live safely, reduce vulnerabilities and risks, and take advantage of opportunities created by new climate conditions.
