image of Arctic Social Indicators

This report is a result of and follow-up to the Arctic Human Development Report (AHDR), which appeared in 2004 and had been conducted under the auspices of the Arctic Council’s Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG). The AHDR marked processes of maturation within the Arctic Council and beyond. On the one hand, the AHDR represented the first social science-driven report prepared for the Arctic Council, indicating that various stakeholders, from politicians to Arctic residents, understood the importance of the ”human dimension”for sustainable development in the Arctic. On the other hand, the processes leading to the AHDR marked new developments in the relationship between Arctic governance and scholarship, including coordinated support for the report from the Standing Committee of Parliamentarians of the Arctic Region (SCPAR).

Conclusion

Measuring Change in Human Development in the Arctic

The long range goal of devising Arctic social indicators is to design and move towards the implementation of a system for monitoring changes in human development in the Arctic and to further our understanding of living conditions within this region. Doing so will ultimately help us to find ways for improving the quality of life in the North.
