Project Details


The project aims to identify and compare prospects and challenges for Arctic regions to generate policy relevant actions to enhance sustainable tourism development, particularly for communities affected by structural changes in living marine resource industries. The project brings academic experts in Arctic marine resource economics, tourism and marketing together with tourism practitioners. This deepens the ability to understand relationships between resource use and degradation, the role of place, and tourism activity. By exploring in-situ case studies of innovative local tourism and business, we seek to understand how best to foster sustainable tourism in the Arctic in order to increase social welfare for the inhabitants of the region and for the consumers of these tourism outputs.
