Arctic Research Coordination Network: Building a Research Network for Promoting Arctic Urban Sustainability

This Research Coordination Network based at George Washington University will promote Arctic urban sustainability in Russia. It is a multi-disciplinary, international effort examining the interconnections among resource development, climate change, and evolving demographic patterns with the goal of providing advice to U.S., Russian, and other policy-makers on how to develop Arctic oil and natural gas deposits and their related infrastructure in a way that produces minimal impact on the environment.
