REXSAC Posters for Arctic EIA workshop, Dec 11-12, 2017

December 11th, 2017

REXSAC researchers share insights at the poster session at the Arctic EIA workshop: Nordic possibilities and perspectives to Environmental Impact Assessments in the Arctic. The workshop is held at Santa’s Hotel Santa Claus in Rovaniemi, Finland on  the 11th-12th of December.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) comprises one of the essential regulatory tools to address these issues and to ensure that planning is sustainable in the long term. However, are the specific features of the Arctic taken sufficiently into consideration in EIAs? Could methods to assess cumulative impacts be improved? Is there enough attention to social and cultural implications and rights of indigenous communities in new projects?  Such questions are addressed in the workshop.
