Impacts of climate change
The impacts of climate change on society and the natural environment depend on the magnitude and speed of the changes and on sensitivity to climatic factors. In Finland, vegetation zones are retreating northwards and the flood risks and the operating conditions of both agriculture and forestry are changing. The global economy and international politics also have considerable implications on Finland. On a global scale, the harmful impacts of climate change are significantly greater than its benefits.
