HSE and NArFU Researchers Unveil New Arctic Development Proposals

Russia’s Arctic territories are home to a diverse but highly vulnerable ecosystem and to traditional lifestyles lived by native peoples resident in the region. It is a region that boasts significant natural resources. So how can we expand our exploitation of these resources and develop the Arctic economy without negatively impacting either the region’s delicate ecosystems or the native people’s way of life?

The round table discussion proposed a resolution for distribution to federal state agencies.
