The Arctic Governance Project
Climate change – coupled with globalization – has triggered a rapidly accelerating cascade of events leading to profound environmental and socioeconomic changes in the Arctic - both on land and at sea. In response, demand is growing for science-based innovation in the conservation, management and governance of Arctic resources.
The Arctic Governance Project joined preeminent researchers, indigenous leaders, and members of the policy community to frame critical questions and issues of governance in the Arctic. The Project's leadership compiled an Action Agenda and a report entitled "Arctic Governance in an Era of Transformative Change: Critical Questions, Governance Principles, Ways Forward." The recommendations contained in these documents were presented to key policymakers in the national, international and non-governmental sectors.
The Project has also assembled an array of global perspectives on Arctic Governance in the Arctic Governance Compendium.
