Managing for the Future in a Rapidly Changing Arctic: a Report to the President

What we did

In 2013, the Interagency Working Group on Coordination of Domestic Energy Development and Permitting in Alaska issued a major report intended to guide policymakers in decisions about the Arctic. In this report, SNAP and ACCAP professionals contributed concise, objective, and engaging information about climate change, development and other Arctic issues.

What we found

The report highlights the need to coordinate and use the best available science to integrate cultural, environmental and economic factors in decision-making about development and conservation in the Arctic.

What we made

SNAP staff found, synthesized, and visualized data, and developed ten figures for the report.
