Extraction of raw materials, reindeer husbandry and land use conflicts
This seminar focusses on drivers behind, consequences of and management strategies to handle increasing pressure on land in the Swedish Arctic. Industries such as mining, forestry, and wind power compete for their part of the energy transformation demanded by climate change, with potentially very severe consequences for reindeer husbandry and other local nature-based industries.
