4TH NORTHERN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FORUM

ENERGY OF THE ARCTIC: NEW CHALLENGES – NEW SOLUTIONS AND TECHNOLOGIES


ABOUT THE FORUM

Northern Sustainable Development Forum (the Forum) is a permanent international expert platform for discussing the issues and prospects of sustainable development of the Arctic and the North.

The main idea of the Forum is to join the creative forces of the Arctic and Asia in solving the problems of sustainable development of the Northern and Arctic regions.

In 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that included 17 Sustainable Development Goals and which implementation should involve not only governments but also transnational companies, charity foundations, community, NGOs and academia worldwide.

Currently, the concept of sustainable development has become central to the Arctic and northern regions – it’s a global challenge requiring comprehensive international cooperation. On the one hand, the exploration of the Arctic region can become promising in the future. On the other hand, the Arctic has a fragile ecosystem, which should be taken care of now not only by the circumpolar countries, but also by the non-Arctic ones, interested in the region’s development.

Sustainable development of the Arctic is a global challenge requiring comprehensive international cooperation.

The Forum has been included in the Program of Russian Chairmanship in the Arctic Council.

DATES: 27-30 ceptember 2022 г.

MAIN THEME OF THE FORUM - 2022:

ENERGY OF THE ARCTIC: NEW CHALLENGES – NEW SOLUTIONS AND TECHNOLOGIES

Climate change, reduction of ice sheet and shifted freeze-up dates in the Arctic Ocean open up a lot of opportunities not only for the development of the previously inaccessible hydrocarbon deposits in the sea, but also for the active development of terrestrial territories. The issues of energy supply for the existing and planned settlements, industrial, transport and other facilities of an extensive infrastructure network are of greatest importance for ensuring the territories’ sustainable development. At the same time, special emphasis will be placed on clean energy, widespread use of renewable sources, sustainable mining, responsible approach of business to preserving and restoring the natural ecosystems, as well as careful attitude to the cultural heritage and traditions of indigenous peoples, as well as support for traditional nature use.

Currently, the ideas of society, business, and state ESG-transformation in the context of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals are being actively promoted and are supported.

The 2022 Forum will discuss the following: What should ESG transformation in the Arctic be like, how realistic are the forecasts for the Arctic? Is successful transformation possible in a single company or region, or is it better to combine efforts? What types of energy will be most in demand in the Arctic? How to ensure and increase the resilience of the Arctic? How to save the energy of people and attract young people to the Arctic? What partnerships are possible in the context of the global remaking in the world order for progressive movement towards the Sustainable Development Goals in the Arctic?
