This inaugural report is designed specifically for state government and Alaska citizens. This report addresses the first of four priority lines of effort identified in Alaska’s Arctic Policy, “promoting economic and resource development,” through the topic of energy. While the report recognizes the policy-making power of local and tribal governments, it highlights key interactive trends in Alaska and the Arctic that are most likely to require legislative decision-making in the near future.
The authors are University of Alaska experts with local, national and international partnerships in both public and private sectors. They used scientific studies, historical and current policy analysis in combination with a close understanding of state, regional, federal and international governance to work collaboratively across the university. The shared result is a synthesis of the key trends that Alaska government needs to pay attention to as they seek success in the globalizing Arctic.
