Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic

ReSDA aims to find ways to ensure that a larger share of the benefits of resource development in the Arctic stay in the region with fewer costs to northern communities.

Research will aim to better understand how the sustainable development of Arctic natural resources can be pursued in a manner that improves the health and well-being of northern communities and conserves the northern environment.

The project will create new research networks that bring together researchers from a wide range of disciplines and organizations representing communities, government, the private sector, and non-profit organizations.
