Sustainable Development Goals in the Arctic

Developing tools to apply SDGs in the Arctic

Objective

In 2017, the Arctic Council, under the Finnish Chair, recognized the importance of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); noting that the SDGs are global in scope but are amendable to the sustainable development of Arctic regions (Government of Finland, 2017).

This project examines the nexus between SDG 2 – Ending hunger and achieving Food security for all; SDG 6 – Ensuring the availability and sustainable management of Water and sanitation for all; and SDG 7 - Ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern Energy for all. This research will be the first WEF nexus study conducted in the Arctic and aims to go beyond knowledge production to develop concrete tools.
