Overview

The pace of technological, social, and environmental change in Canadas Arctic has profound effects on resource management and policy decisions. The chapters in this volume result from a project undertaken by the Ocean Management Research Network that examines the nature of Arctic environmental evolution and sustainability. From the pressures of development, technological advances, globalization and climate change to social and cultural life, this book attempts to define the nature of competing demands and assess their impact on the environment. These essays provide a detailed examination of ocean and coastal management in the Canadian north, exploring a wide range of issues critical to environmental stewardship, and breaking the ice to connect academics, government managers, policy-makers, aboriginal groups and industry.
