Arctic as a Food Producing Region

Arctic as a Food Producing Region

The Arctic as a Food Producing Region is an Arctic Council project under the auspices of the Sustainable Development Working Group. The project aims to “assess the potential for increased production and added value of food from the Arctic, with the overarching aim of improving food security, and enhancing the social and economic conditions of Arctic communities”. The project will be carried out in collaboration with Inuit Circumpolar Council (Canada), Gwitch’in Council International, University of Saskatchewan and Carleton University.

Arctic Athabaskan Council’s interest in this project is two fold: (1) to share in the objective and seek answers to the research questions proposed in order to maximize impact, applicability, and local engagement; and (2) to engage in best practices related to Permanent Participant engagement in Arctic Council projects at all stages of the project cycle.

The project will use a phased approach. AAC will provide updates as more information becomes available.
