    Natural Resources and Sustainable Development Last updated March 20th, An increasingly ice-free Arctic could lead to lucrative new business and development opportunities for Arctic nations – particularly in mining, oil and gas drilling, commercial fishing and tourism. Perhaps the most potentially exploitable natural resources in the northern polar regions consist of fossil fuels -- namely, oil and natural gas. Geologists estimate that the Arctic houses approximately 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered petroleum reserves, plus about 30 percent of its undiscovered natural .

    The network seeks to develop capacity in collaborative natural resource management and community monitoring in the Arctic. Overall Goal In collaborative management, fishermen, hunters and local community members play a central role in the decision-process about the use of natural resources. *Required Spring semester courses: Introductory safety course Sea ice ecology Sustainable use of living resources in the Arctic Greenhouse gases and climate effects in the Arctic Arctic Marine Ecosystems in a changing climate Autumn semester courses: Bioprocessing in the North Atlantic Applied Economics of Arctic Natural Resources Environmental.

    The Arctic is home to approximately four million people, with the share of indigenous and non-indigenous populations varying widely between the Arctic states. Larger settlements are usually located in resource-strategic positions. Rich deposits of natural resources are . Minerals. The Arctic has vast deposits of economically valuable mineral resources. Significant deposits of phosphate, bauxite, diamonds, iron ore, and gold are located in the Arctic region. Deposits of silver, copper, and zinc also exist in the Arctic. Resource extraction is extremely difficult, however.

Although the exploitation of natural resources in the Arctic is still, in many cases, merely potential, the possibility of this happening in the near future is a consequence of climate change.

Arctic Natural Resources The natural resources of the Arctic are the mineral and animal resources within the Arctic Circle that can provide utility or economic benefit to humans.

The mineral resources include major reserves of oil and natural gas, large quantities of minerals including iron ore, copper, nickle, zinc phosphates and diamonds. Oil & Gas. The Arctic contains a wealth of petroleum and mineral resources. Currently, the region produces about one tenth of the world's oil and a quarter of its natural gas.

The Russian Arctic is the source for about 80 percent of this oil and virtually all of the natural gas; Arctic Canada, Alaska, and Norway are the other leading producers.
