Conference in October 2015


Conference Themes:

The ecosystem changes underway in the Arctic region are expected to have significant impacts on living resources in both the short and long run, and current actions and policies adopted over such resource governance will have serious and ultimately irreversible consequences in the near and long terms. The themes of the conference will be:

  1. Global management and institutions for Arctic marine resources
  2. Resource stewards and users: local and indigenous co-management
  3. Governance gaps in Arctic marine resource management
  4. Multi-scale, ecosystem-based, Arctic marine resource management

The conference will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland, 14th-16th of October 2015. We have arranged to hold the conference at the Center Hotel Plaza in Reykjavik, Iceland. You can learn more about the hotel here;
