Resource Extraction and Sustainable Arctic Communities – REXSAC


We explore how communities participate in the collection of data concerning social and climatic change, how those processes serve to empower communities in taking decisions, and how environmental and social impact assessment frameworks can be strengthened. Our work aims to improve our understanding of the interconnections between climate change, the use of natural resources, non-renewable resource development and socio-ecological systems in Greenland.

By addressing issues of pressing contemporary concern to Greenland, bringing together natural and social-scientific approaches, we endeavor to understand the impacts of climate change on communities. Our work focuses on understanding climate change within the context of other trends and societal and economic transformations in Greenland, including resource development and extractive industries.
