The United States is an Arctic nation, one of only eight such nations worldwide that are responsible for the stewardship of a region undergoing dramatic environmental, social, and economic changes. The implications of these changes demand a fresh look at how the Federal Government and its partners address management challenges in the region.



In consultation with the National Ocean Council, the National Security Staff, and the Arctic Research Commission, the Interagency Working Group on Coordination of Domestic Energy Development and Permitting in Alaska (Alaska Interagency Working Group) initiated this report to describe these challenges as they relate to the management of natural resources in the U.S. Arctic.



The report presents recommendations for advancing a common management approach that provides coordinated, forward-thinking solutions.



ACCAP and SNAP provided writing and editorial assistance for this report as well as maps and graphics depicting ecologically and culturally important areas, biota, and processes, natural resources, and key drivers of environmental changes in the Arctic.
