Special Feature: Sustainable and Thriving Arctic Communities: Insights from the Fulbright Arctic Initiative
Climate change, economic transitions and infrastructure development driven by low carbon imperatives present new sets of challenges to the peoples and regions of the Arctic. These challenges are complex, interdependent and highly interactive. Such complexity of challenges requires multi-lateral and multi-sectoral collaborations among communities, policy makers, practitioners, and scholars to find innovative solutions for a sustainable and thriving Arctic. This set of papers focusses on two primary areas of inquiry: how to ensure public health reflects Indigenous values and rights, as well as community driven approaches, in Arctic communities; and, how economic and infrastructure development can contribute to Arctic sustainability.
