    ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ International Arctic Forum to consider prospects for energy supply to Arctic regions

    The programme for the ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ International Arctic Forum (March 29–30, Arkhangelsk) includes a roundtable on ‘Addressing the present issues of energy supply to the Arctic regions through resolving hydrocarbon extraction challenges in the same regions’.

    This topic takes on a special relevance in the context of the Arctic’s extreme climactic conditions. Participants in the discussion will consider effective mechanisms for supplying energy to remote northern communities.

    Invitees to the roundtable will include scientists, technology specialists, and regional leaders. Regional authorities will be involved in discussing how to attract investors and develop small hydrocarbon deposits to provide a reliable point source supply of energy to isolated regions.

    The ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ programme, with the key theme of ‘People and the Arctic’, offers over 40 events, including 32 themed sessions, roundtables, and discussions, two plenary sessions, and an extended session of the State Commission for Arctic Development.

    The ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ International Arctic Forum provides one of the key platforms for discussing the problems and prospects of the Arctic region at the global level. The event is held with direct support from the Government of the Russian Federation, and is designed to bring the global community together in the interests of securing the effective development of the Arctic and improving the lives of Arctic residents. The first ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ International Arctic Forum was held in 2010, and was devoted to the present-day problems facing the Arctic region. The second Forum was held in 2011 and tackled the issue of creating an Arctic transport system. In 2013, the event was dedicated to environmental protection. The key theme of the ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ 4th International Arctic Forum will be ‘People and the Arctic’. It is expected that more than 1,000 people from Russia and abroad will attend the Forum. http://forumarctica.ru/
