(Logo: Institute of the North) The Institute of the North is excited to release the first 2014 Arctic Resource Governance Network research project. This project reviews and discusses the impact of electrical grid connectivity on social and economic development. This white paper explores the current electrical capacity in five communities—Anadyr, Hammerfest, Iqaluit, Nome, and Reyðarfjörður—in the circumpolar north, as well as the subsequent effects on local economic and social well-being. This white paper is available in two parts:

  1. Executive Summary and Findings
  2. Community Case Studies

The Arctic Resource Governance Network (ARGN) brings together and creates opportunities for a broad and diverse group of individuals and organizations that have a common interest in the Arctic Energy and Mining issues.

The Network helps its members to create new relationships and partnerships within the sector of Arctic energy and mining, develop a better understanding of common challenges, share unique and innovative experience as well as to work across the northern distance.
