The Russian Arctic hosts significant natural resources, whilst it also suffers from serious environmental degradation which is critical for the Northern environment. The Russian leadership has included the idea of diversification of the economy to avoid future dependence on the fossil fuel exports, as well as innovation and high technology, in its various official programmes and plans. This idea potentially helps to reconcile environmental and social sustainability with economic growth in the Russian Arctic, thus promoting green growth.
Combining sociological scrutiny with policy analysis and economic considerations, this project explores the status of green growth in the Russian Arctic, prospects for existing environmental policies contributing to green growth, and the potential to generate green jobs. The project will contribute to the conceptualizations of green growth as well as help understand the practical conditions of green growth in the Russian Arctic.
