The newly established Center for the Ocean and the Arctic is based deep within the Arctic circle in one of Norway’s northernmost cities, Tromsø. Its task is to coordinate efforts to chart a course for sustainable use of the ocean and the Arctic. Its mandate also includes working toward the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 14 on conservation and sustainable use of the oceans. The sustainable development goals are both ambitious and overarching in their targets. The challenge in achieving them is translating the goals into specific targets at a local level.
DNV GL has been entrusted with producing the first two reports: a status of a sustainable blue economy in the Norwegian Arctic and a foresight study analyzing the challenges and opportunities associated with developing a sustainable blue economy in the Norwegian Arctic. The reports, expected to be completed early next year, aim to strengthen knowledge and empower decision-makers as they translate the global sustainable development goals into action.
