Findings on the state and changes in Arctic human development and wellbeing are presented. Based on our analysis and conclusions from the five case studies the framework for an ASI monitoring system is introduced. We argue that the long-term monitoring of human development in the Arctic would be greatly facilitated by the regular and frequent collection and reporting of relevant data, including those required for the proposed small set of ASI indicators.




This report focuses on the labelling of the date of minimum durability on prepacked food, one of the reasons identified by researchers for food waste from production to consumer. It presents the results of a Nordic project carried out by researchers in collaboration with national authorities and industry. The project is financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers through the Nordic Green Growth Programme.
