Arctic Balance: Creating Economic Growth While Enhancing Environmental Stewardship
As the Arctic undergoes profound change, there is a growing public debate on how to achieve a sustainable balance between managing the Arctic’s natural resources and creating economic opportunity, while at the same time enhancing environmental protection of this pristine region.
While Norway’s stated Arctic Policy attempts to strike this balance by “creating value, managing resources, confronting climate change, and fostering knowledge,” other Arctic states perceive and implement this policy balance in different ways.
Please join us for a discussion on the challenges and opportunities of finding and implementing such a policy balance in the Arctic with Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende who will offer the Norwegian Government’s perspective on the future of Arctic development.
This event is hosted in cooperation and with generous financial support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
