The Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke), as the lead of the ArcticHubs project, is leveraging its expertise in geospatial analysis and scenario planning to create participatory tools that enable informed decision-making for various stakeholders in the European Arctic. These tools are co-designed during the project activities with partners and stakeholders to support decision-makers, local communities, industries, and other interested parties in understanding and planning for the region’s future.
ArcticHubs’s participatory approach to co-design tools and also solutions is instrumental in deepening our understanding of the Arctic’s unique and delicate ecosystem. As the project progress, findings not only underscores the necessity for sustainable practices in challenging environments but also establishes new standards for resource and land use and the need for collaborative efforts in the Arctic.
