Arctic Social Indicators II (ASI-II) is a follow-up activity to ASI-I (2010) and the first Arctic Human Development Report (AHDR, 2004). The objective of ASI (2010) was to develop a small set of Arctic specific social indicators that as a collective would help facilitate the tracking and monitoring of change in human development in the Arctic. ASI indicators were developed for six domains that are considered prominent aspects of human development in the Arctic by residents in the Arctic: Health and Population; Material Wellbeing; Education; Cultural Wellbeing; Contact with Nature; and Fate Control.

Sustainability from a Local Point of View

Alaska's North Slope and Oil Development

We commonly assume that the actions of multinational corporations to extract petroleum resources in remote areas will conflict with the sustainability of local communities. Such development would seem to typify the opposite of sustainable development. It is a non-renewable resource being developed by non-local corporations possessing vastly more financial resources than local communities.
