Event:

The Arctic in 2045: a long-term vision (WP1453)

Image: Josef Friedhuber

The Arctic is as important as it is diverse. Whilst it is at the frontier of climate change and a region of global environmental importance, it is also the home and place of work to over four million people. Rapid technological as well as environmental changes are driving the economic and social development of the region.

In its ‘Vision for the Arctic’ document produced in 2013, the Council outlined key principles to guide the future activities of Arctic states: maintaining peace and stability; ensuring the welfare of Arctic citizens and indigenous peoples; promoting sustainable development; strengthening cooperation on environmental and civil security; addressing conservation needs; pursuing research and maintaining a strong Council. The international community has a long-term role to play in supporting the Arctic states to achieve that vision.
