Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Book chapter › Research › peer-review
The data within this report is derived both from secondary and primary sources. The analysis of the current maritime activity is based on published analytical reports on maritime activity, facts and statistics published by different official sources in brochures and online; and direct interviews with local experts in the countries participating in the study - Russia, Norway, Iceland and Greenland. The report also uses data obtained during discussions on the MARPART conference held in Arkhangelsk, 23-25 September 2014, the 2015 High North Dialogue conference panels held in Bodø 17-19 March 2015, and the MARPART conference and Advisory Board meeting held in Murmansk, 7-11 April 2015.
In each country, the analysis focuses on six types of maritime activity: coastal transport, intercontinental transport, fisheries, petroleum activity, tourism and research/government activity. The last chapter is devoted to summarizing findings about the current developed activity level in the High North sea and coastal regions and the estimated activity level up to 2025. Possible implications for the preparedness system in the High North are also discussed.
