The Mother of all Environmental Impact Assessments: development of the Arctic

The proposed scope of this €1m appointment is to design and carry out a strategic impact assessment, covering political, economic and environmental impacts of development of the Arctic region.

The development is proposed as a networked undertaking by leading Arctic communication and research centres and universities in order to facilitate two-way information exchange between the EU institutions and the Arctic stakeholders and foster EU–civil society contacts.

The objective of this EIA will be to test the feasibility of the possible future establishment of the EU Arctic Information Centre as expressed in the Commission’s Arctic communication in 2008 and in Parliament’s report ‘Sustainable EU policy for the high north’ in 2011.
