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.
