polar-geographyAs a co-author, Annika E Nilsson has contributed to a recent review on knowledge gaps regarding sustainable development in the Arctic, described further in the publication: “Arctic Sustainability Research: Toward a New Agenda.” Polar Geography 39, no. 3 (2016): 165-78.

“Important themes include continued refinement of integrated sustainability indicators; examining sustainable development as process; analyzing success stories and failures; performing longitudinal analysis (both back and forward) of sustainable development, investigating linkages between climate change and sustainable development; analyzing the role of institutions in sustainable development; examining sustainable development in urban areas and the relationships between rural and urban people, places and phenomena; and continuing analysis of the roles of resources, traditional and emerging economies (creative, arts, high tech) as factors and instruments of sustainable development. Finally, examining the roles equity, agency, power and justice along key axes of difference in the Arctic – gender, age and identity – will only become increasingly important as the region continues to transform into the future.”
