1 WP 230: Oil and gas and other mineral resources Leaders: Ocean Futures, Norway (Willy Østreng and Arnfinn Jørgensen-Dahl)Co-leader: Council for the Study of Productive Forces , Russia (Alexander Granberg)Participants: Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, IOPG/RASArnfinn Jørgensen-Dahl, Bergen, October 2009
2 Relevance of the work in WP 230 Contribute to quantification of climate change impacts on economic sectors in the ArcticPresence of a wide variety of biological and mineral resourcesOil and gas
3 WP 230 Outline www.ocean-futures.com Mineral resources of the Arctic - Proven and undiscovered reserves, onshore and offshore, proven and designated reserves of other minerals, size, location in the Arctic landscape and vis-à-vis Arctic shipping lanesAnalyse their significance in the context of global resources and their competitivenessEnvironmental impact of the extraction of mineral resourcesEffects of climate change on the search for and extraction of mineral resourcesThe extent to which Arctic mineral resources are likely to be turned into locally manufactured value-added productsInteraction between resource exploitation and population variables
4 Expected outcomes of WP 230 Arctic oil and gas and other minerals in the global resources contextUnderstanding of the interaction between resource exploitation, climate change, and nature conservation in the ArcticSustainable development in the Arctic within the context of mineral exploitationGeopolitical aspects and conditions and their influence or otherwise on the presence and exploitation of mineral resourcesUnderstanding of climate change, population dynamics, and resource extractionEffects of resources extraction on Arctic populations and human settlements: improve, maintain, or impoverish their quality of life?
