Permafrost Carbon Feedback Project

The Permafrost Carbon Feedback Project aims to raise awareness of the climate threat posed by the Permafrost Carbon Feedback (PCF) and build the political will and incentives to develop technologies and strategies to slow the rate of permafrost thaw.

With support from the PCF Advisory Team and the Canadian Permafrost Association, Cascade Institute researchers will develop an Intervention Roadmap that:

  1. updates the scientific assessment of the PCF threat;
  2. identifies knowledge gaps;
  3. connects scientists, activists, business people, practitioners, and policy makers with northern and Indigenous people; and
  4. develops and disseminates technical and policy options.
