The Arctic is of special importance to the earth's ecosystem and the fact that it is changing rapidly due to climate change is of common concern of the international community. The changes in the Arctic environment affect the whole aspect of the north; ice, sea, vegetation, animals and humans. Recent years these changes have gained increasing attention and many organizations and affiliations have been established to deal with these changes.

These organizations and affiliations vary by topics, some focus on the environment, some on the data, some on the people etc.

Below is a list of organizations and affiliates working in Arctic science.
