The Arctic is an area of potential large-scale economic activities of production, processing and transportation of mineral raw materials conducted in a sensitive environment. Considerable risks of emergencies exist due to the natural and technical character of these activities. The situation becomes even more serious in the conditions of the climate change because the region is climate influencing.
This project is a continuation of previous activities carried out by ECNTRM in 2011. The global objective is to prepare a survey on the correlation between increased Arctic development and climate change.
