The global and strategic importance of the Arctic has increased in later years. The framework conditions for development in the Arctic are under constant change. Dramatic climate changes manifest themselves in this vulnerable region and there is growing demand for important resources from this area, such as seafood, minerals, oil, gas and other energy resources.
Due to its location and a longstanding relationship to the Arctic, Norway has a particular responsibility for both contributing to increased knowledge about the Arctic, and knowledge based sustainable management of resources in the area. Norway has a long tradition of exploring the Arctic and has thus developed a special interest and responsibility for polar research within a wide range of areas. International cooperation within Arctic research is essential in order to ensure a global perspective and the best possible management of the Arctic environment and resources.
