The goals of the second volume of the AHDR – Arctic Human Development Report: Regional Processes and Global Linkages – are to provide an update to the first AHDR (2004) in terms of an assessment of the state of Arctic human development; to highlight the major trends and changes unfolding related to the various issues and thematic areas of human development in the Arctic over the past decade; and, based on this assessment, to identify policy relevant conclusions and key gaps in knowledge, new and emerging Arctic success stories.



Preface and AHDR-II Acknowledgements

We are pleased to present this second volume of the Arctic Human Development Report: Regional Processes and Global Linkages (AHDR-II). The report was initiated by the Stefansson Arctic Institute in 2010, and together with the Icelandic representation on the Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG) of the Arctic Council it was presented to the Council in 2011 for project endorsement. The startup work on this second volume was met with great enthusiasm, including by members of the Arctic Council, Parliamentarians of the Arctic Region, the scientific community and educators throughout the North.
