Future Challenges in the Arctic
What are the living conditions like for women and men in the Arctic region? This was the focus of Gender Equality in the Arctic: Current Realities and Future Challenges. A new report summarises the discussions at the conference.
Among other prominent themes were: the importance of gender mainstreaming into all aspects of Arctic development as well as implementing effective tools for gender analysis at all levels of governance; the obligation of Arctic states to ensure gender equality and to eliminate all forms of discrimination; the need for making gender-related issues a priority in the Arctic; and the necessity to adopt a holistic, context-based approach to Arctic development.
