Op-ed: When Longyearbyen Adapts to Increasing Ship Traffic

The Arctic is changing and that affects our local communities. Changes to climate and ecosystems may create both opportunities and challenges to business and management. Reduction of sea ice makes coastal communities in the Arctic more available for ship traffic.  At the same time, we know too little about how this affects these communities.

I stroll around the Honningsvåg harbor and look for answers to how demanding it might be to be a northerner. We are applauded by our political leaders. Our economy flourishes. Statistics, however, blows a fierce wind into our faces – a stern warning of the long-term outlooks we face.

The USA has handed chairmanship of the Arctic Council over to Finland. The most important delivery of the US chairmanship (2015-2017) is a new international agreement on Arctic Science Cooperation.

Op-Ed: What is the Imagined North?

I feared the worst when a prime minister and three government ministers the other day described Northern Norway as ‘the land of opportunity’, a curse repeated indefinitely since then 1970s.
