I will dive into a few topics covered by the ”Arctic Resilience Interim Report 2013” and ”The Arctic Environment – From Low To High Politics” and will elaborate on some questions concerning these.
From ”Arctic Environment – From Low to High Politics”:
From the ”Arctic Resilience Interim Report 2013”:
The author goes into various pilot case studies. I will look at two of these. Firstly, they discuss strategies to enhance the resilience of Sámi reindeer husbandry to rapid changes in the Arctic. The study is on the Sámi reindeer herding community in Finnmark, Norway. Since the 1600s many governmental changes have occured where for example migration routes. Some of these changes has led to a decreasing usage of traditional knowledge of Sámi herding, leading to a more instable resilience. Climate change has also caused a blockage of migration where the snow is either too much or there is ice underneath the snow. This can lead to starvation. The conditions are serious and the solution for a better resilience is to integrate traditional knowledge into formal governance systems and teach and involve the younger generation in traditional knowledge, according to the authors.
A second pilot study includes food security in the Arctic.
