Summary

With the Arctic experiencing unprecedented changes, there is heightened focus on the region for its economic potential. Investments in the region require an array of infrastructure to support sustainable, community-focused economic development, and to process and transport materials, people, and data. Infrastructure development has wide-ranging impacts and implications on the Arctic's environment and communities, and calls for sustainable approaches.

Please join the Wilson Center's Polar Institute and Global Risk & Resilience Program for a discussion on Arctic infrastructure and sustainable investment. This event will also be webcast, which will appear on the event webpage when the program begins.
