Greenland Institute of Natural Resources

The Greenland Institute of Natural Resources was established on 1 January 1995. The Institute conducts research into Arctic ecosystems, monitors the living resources and the environment in Greenland and advises the Government of Greenland and other authorities on sustainable exploitation of living resources and safeguarding the environment and biodiversity.

The Institute has three departments:

  • Department of Fish and Shellfish
  • Department of Birds and Mammals
  • Department of Environment and Mineral Resources.

Furthermore, there is a cross-disciplinary Danish/Greenlandic climate centre: The Greenland Climate Research Centre. The climate research centre is embedded in the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources, and conducts research into effects of climate change on the Arctic environment and Greenlandic society.
