Arctic Management

The Environmental Law Institute works in the Arctic to support and strengthen the role of Alaska Natives in offshore resource management processes. Coastal communities stand to be most affected by changes to the offshore environment and have extensive knowledge of individual resources of the ecosystem as a whole. We believe their leadership and knowledge is essential to the success of efforts to protect and sustainably use Arctic marine resources, and work to identify how relevant statutory, regulatory, and policy structures can be improved to ensure Alaska Native input is robustly incorporated into the decision-making processes.
