Dr. Martin Sommerkorn is Head of Conservation for the WWF Arctic Programme. He brings science underscoring the role of nature for social-ecological resilience to the policy-making table and leads work on Arctic nature conservation and resource governance. In his first career as an Arctic ecosystem scientist Martin gathered first-hand experience of the Arctic’s unique places, peoples and concerns while working in Siberia, Alaska, Greenland, Svalbard and Scandinavia. Martin was lead author for several Arctic Council assessments and is currently coordinating lead author for the Polar Regions chapter of the IPCC’s Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate.
