population

A new time has come and brought to life a new paradigm of culture. What is its novelty? Today, the planetary significance and geo-economic role of the Arctic in the global development is increasing. In these changing conditions, the geo-cultural component of the development of the Arctic is also growing. To paraphrase the classics, we can speak of three sources and three components of northern culture of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia): Arctic, Asian, and Russian-European. Today, the cultural energy of the peoples of the republic should take the northern vector, expressing the essence of the spiritual aspirations of the peoples inhabiting the climatic zone of permafrost. The participation of many ethnic groups in the niche of northern culture, based on the civilization of East and West, confirms the culture-forming beginning of geography in human life. The importance of the Arctic center of epic and arts in the formation and promotion of a new paradigm in world culture.

Roundtable Discussion Indigenous and Local Governance under Industrial Development in the North (September 25-26)
population  

Industrial development is known worldwide as a trigger for changes in territorial management. Some of the best-known Arctic Indigenous Governance Agreements are due to industrial development, such as the Alaska Native Land Claims Settlement Act, the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, the status of tribal lands in Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug and ethnological expertise in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). This session invites presentations focusing on how indigenous and local residents developed their management practices in connection with the industrial development of their territories. Presentations aimed at analyzing how traditional legal norms and customs of territorial administration live in the process of industrial development, how activists use available legal mechanisms to preserve their rights to access their traditional pasture, hunting and fishing lands and how the young generation promotes innovation in territorial Arctic management. Taken together, understanding of new governance mechanisms can make a significant contribution to the sustainable development of the Arctic as a place of peace, cooperation and development.

Panel Discussion Labor Resources – a Foundation for the Sustainable Development of the Arctic
economy

The effectiveness of the existing measures of social support for the regions of the Far North and the development of the Arctic territories can be assessed by two criteria:
1) the effect on the ratio of wages received to the level of wages in other regions of Russia;
2) the adequacy of the payments to retain people in the North, i.e. their impact on migration processes. It should be recognized that the existing benefits and compensations in the form of district coefficients and northern allowances are not an effective tool to motivate people to live and work permanently in the northern territories, including the territory of the Russian Arctic, so there is a constant migration outflow of the population. To increase the income level of those working and living in the Russian Arctic, it is reasonable to adopt regional laws on the social appeal of jobs in the Arctic regions of Russia, which would provide for reaching a decent level of differentiation of wages of personnel, competitive compared to other regions of the country and megacities. It is necessary to provide for the possibility of additional compensations regarding extreme environmental conditions, including payment of travel expenses to recreations not once every two years, but every year, and not to limit the fare. To improve the quality of life of those working and living in the Arctic, attention should be paid to the development of transport and social infrastructure, and special attention should be paid to the development of cultural and leisure infrastructure facilities, the lack of which is directly felt by the population.

Roundtable and Panel Discussion Ecotourism and Protected Areas
ecology

Tourism opens up great opportunities for the Arctic and contributes to the development of territories and local communities. At the same time, there is a need for an integrated approach to ecotourism, which would take into account the interests of all countries of the macro-region, academia, tourism industry and tourists. Obviously, the whole region requires a special approach from the state, business and tourists, including respect for nature and maintenance of the local communities’ special status. How can the experience of creating national parks and world heritage sites in other regions help develop ecotourism in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and what economic effect can be achieved? How should the negative impact of the tourist zones’ development on the ecology and livelihoods of the local population be compensated for? How to prevent an imbalance in the economy typical for tourist regions?

Industrial development is known around the world as a trigger for making changes in territorial management. Some of the best-known agreements for managing indigenous territories in the Arctic originated due to the industrial development, such as the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, the James Bay Agreement, the Status of Tribal Clauses in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area and the Law on ethnological expertise in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Presentations, which focus on how indigenous and local residents developed their management practices in connection with the industrial development of their territories are invited to this session. Reports aimed to analyze how traditional legal norms and customs of territorial administration continue to operate in the process of industrial development, how activists use available legal mechanisms to preserve their rights to access their traditional pastures, hunting and fishing lands and how the younger generation applies innovations in territorial management in the Arctic are particularly welcome. Understanding the new common governance mechanisms can make a significant contribution to the sustainable development of the Arctic as a territory for peaceful cooperation and development.

Roundtable Discussion Human and Nature, Society and State in the North. Models fo rcooperation: tradition and modernization (17th-21stcentury)
ecology

The round table suggests discussing the traditional and modernization models of human-nature interaction, the role of society and state in this process in the North. The traditional model, presented by the economy of the indigenous residents of the North, which traditionalism was gradually declining, and the economy of the old-Russian population. For them, nature is the subject with which they come into interaction to maintain balance to a greater or lesser extent. The modernization model is a completely different attitude to nature. For a modernization model, nature is an object that needs to be used as rationally as possible to fulfill certain needs. The criteria of rationality are purely material categories. The study of these models, including the Soviet model of society-nature interaction in its “northern version” is a highly topical research area.

In 1991, the Northern Forum, an international non-governmental organization of northern regions’ governors was founded, whose mission is to improve the quality of life of the population and support the sustainable development of cold-climate regions. The Northern Forum has so far remained the only international organization of the North and the Arctic aimed at supporting interregional cooperation throughout the circumpolar Arctic, establishing a North-South dialogue, primarily with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Over its nearly 30-year history, the Northern Forum has carried out many projects that have tangibly affected the socio-economic development of the regions, and has held hundreds of events. Every two years, the General Assembly of the organization is held, where in addition to organizational issues, general issues of interaction between regions and business partners are discussed. Recently, the NF Governors Summit has been introduced into practice to define the priority areas for cooperation in the near future. 10 working groups have been formed to launch project activities in specific areas.

The roundtable discussion is dedicated to a wide range of issues related to the prospects of active management of hydrological risks in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). We see floods as a natural phenomenon entailing significant socio-economic consequences, the scale of which, in turn, is determined by a number of social factors. In a broad sense, floods are a challenge to the socio-economic formation as a whole. The plenary reports before the discussion will present on the following: the main natural factors of floods and the vulnerability of settlements to their negative impact; probabilistic assessment of direct damage and approaches to determining indirect damage; level of population satisfaction with preventive and organizational measures; property insurance in the flooded areas. Active management of hydrological risks requires a strategic approach, which characteristics in the Russian Arctic will be discussed by the participants of the roundtable.
