FINAL REPORT

III Northern Sustainable Development Forum (III NSDF) was held in Yakutsk from 27 to 30 September 2021. Northern Sustainable Development Forum (hereinafter referred to as the Forum) is an annual international expert platform for discussing the problems and prospects of sustainable development of the North and the Arctic since 2019. The main idea of the Forum is to unite the creative forces of the world to solve the problems of sustainable development of the regions of the North and the Arctic. In 2015, at a meeting of the UN General Assembly, 17 Sustainable Development Goals were defined in the "2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development", in the implementation of which not only governments, but also transnational companies, charitable foundations, society, non-governmental organizations, scientists around the world should be involved. Today, the concept of sustainable development has become essential for the regions of the North and the Arctic– it is a global challenge, the solution of which requires the development of comprehensive international cooperation. On the one hand, in the future, the economic development of the Arctic region may become promising. On the other hand, this region has a fragile ecosystem, the care of which should be shown today not only by the circumpolar states, but also by non-Arctic countries interested in its development.

III NSDF was held in a hybrid format (online and offline). In total, 51 guest came to the forum in person (offline), including 12 foreign guests, from 5 countries (Canada, USA, Iceland, Italy, Japan). For the main days of the III NSDF (from September 27 to 30), as well as on additional days for side events (September 6, 23-24, October 1, 5-6, 14-15), 76 events were held (46 in a hybrid format (on 18 venues in Yakutsk with the connection of participants to the Zoom platform) and 30 online on the Zoom platform). Events of the III NSDF were held in the following formats: plenary sessions, panel discussions, round tables, webinars, scientific and practical conferences, workshops, project presentations, exhibitions, excursions, cultural events and side events. International platforms for discussing the sustainable development of the North and the Arctic have become permanent: Russia-China, Russia-South Korea, Russia-Japan.

The program of the Forum consisted of five thematic blocks:

  1. Main theme "Climate change and permafrost response"
  2. Human in the Arctic
  3. Global Partnership for the sustainable development of the North and the Arctic
  4. The Youth Forum
  5. Northern Forum: 30 years of Cooperation

The main theme of the forum in 2021 was "Climate change and the response of permafrost". Climate change and permafrost response are global challenges that are interrelated. The state of the environment around the world and the global climate change taking place today are influenced by the processes taking place in the Arctic. Permafrost, for its part, occupies at least 25% of the entire land area of the globe. The Arctic is one of the most fragile ecological systems on the planet. Reducing the thickness of the ice and reducing the area of ice cover will significantly change the characteristics of ecosystems associated with sea ice. Climate change is becoming the most significant long-term stressor for biodiversity. Over the past decades, the disappearance of some unique habitats of Arctic flora and fauna has continued. On land, there is an onset of woody vegetation on traditional tundra ecosystems, including grasses, mosses, lichens, the area of which is decreasing. Reduced ice can also have a negative impact on Arctic sea animals. Time intervals and migration paths of birds are likely to change. Climate change towards warming will increase the activity of pests, parasites and the frequency of various diseases. Fish migration from the southern seas to the northern seas is expected, which will create competition for Arctic fish species. Of particular importance is the problem of degradation of permafrost, the melting process of which can have a negative impact on the state of infrastructure built on frozen soils, as well as affect the emission of greenhouse gases. The melting of permafrost under the influence of climate can dramatically affect the livelihoods of the population, which, in connection with the ongoing changes, will need to adapt to the newly emerged conditions. The situation in the Arctic is a clear example of how climate change affects geopolitics. This entire gigantic region, formerly permanently bound by ice, is now opening up to commercial shipping and natural resource development. The international community faces a number of new opportunities, but it also faces challenges that are waiting to be addressed.

On the main topic "Climate change and the response of permafrost", the following aspects were considered at the forum:

  • the impact of global climate change on ecosystems;
  • the degradation of permafrost due to climate change;
  • the impact of climate change on the socio-economic development of the territories.

Gala event in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Northern Forum "Living Arctic". Opening of the III Northern Sustainable Development Forum, dedicated to the Day of Statehood of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia)

III International Northern Sustainable Development Forum was held in Yakutsk. The opening ceremony was held in the Historical Park "My Russia" on September 27 on the Day of Statehood of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). The idea of the performance was formed by the Chairman of the Northern Forum Working Group on Culture, the State Counselor of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), the famous theater director Andrei Savvich Borisov. In 2019, A.S. Borisov's production of "Light over the Arctic", staged at the I NSDF, won the national award "Theater of the Masses". The Professional Prize "Theater of the Masses" is awarded on a competitive basis for creative achievements in the field of mass forms of theatrical art.

Artists and representatives of communities of indigenous peoples of the North of Yakutia met guests and participants of the forum. Especially for this event, an exhibition of traditional folk crafts of the House of Friendship of Nations named after A.E. Kulakovsky was made.

As a sign of belonging to this event, the participants passed through the sacred «chychypkan», tied a colored ribbon of «delbirge», which, according to northern tradition, is a symbol of purity of motives, a sign of openness and involvement in our common destiny.

A theatrical performance "Living Arctic" was held with the participation of artists of the State Theater of Indigenous Peoples of the North, the Olonkho Theater, creative teams of the House of Friendship of Nations named after A.E. Kulakovsky and the Association of Indigenous Peoples.

The production presents "Ode to Life". As a sign of sincere respect, the ancient sacred symbol of the support - the staff of the nyoro was presented to Arja Haikara, chairman of the committee of regional coordinators of the Northern Forum.

Total number of participants (spectators, guests) – 200 people

Artists, creative staff – 100 people.
