Sustainable development in the Arctic can be defined as development that improves heath, well-being and security of Arctic communities and residents while conserving ecosystem structures, functions and resources. Sustainable development in the Arctic is a goal, process and outcome desired by four million Arctic residents, including diverse Indigenous communities. Though Arctic Indigenous peoples constitute approximately 10% of the region’s population, they have been and remain to be active custodians of this vast territory and its natural resources for millennia. The purpose of the seminar is to identify what efforts are being made for sustainable development in the Arctic and to understand its significance and challenges for Indigenous peoples. The seminar addresses these issues focusing on the influence of climate change in the Arctic. This seminar is the result of cross-disciplinary research of three ArCSII programs.
