In recent years with rapid changes of climate and environment in the Arctic region and China’s economic growth, the interaction between China and the Arctic has been increasingly deepened, which calls for a coherent and sustainable development of the Arctic and China.
China-Nordic Arctic research cooperation has been intensified over the past few years and during that period Chinese institutes such as the Polar Research Institute of China (PRIC) and Shanghai Institute of International Studies (SIIS) have strengthened their ties with international counterparts.
The 6th China-Nordic Arctic Cooperation Symposium will take place in Tromsø, Norway, under the theme "Integrated Ocean Management in the Arctic” covering the overarching issues of knowledge building, governance challenges and science-governance interplay.
Thematic sessions include: 1) Fisheries Management in Arctic Waters, 2) Marine Pollution, 3) Climate Change, Maritime Governance and Sustainability in the Arctic. The symposium agenda is now available. Please see the link above for more information.
