Foredrag: "Can risks in the Arctic be managed?" - Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, Direktør, DNV

  • Interest in the Arctic is growing rapidly, fuelled by melting sea ice, promises of rich energy and mineral resources, prospects for shortened shipping routes.
  • The Arctic is, simultaneously, a region of great promise and of great paradox.
  • The paradox is epitomized by the contradicting climate change message coming out of the region: Scientific results in the Arctic visualize better than anywhere else the serious nature of the threat of climate change.
  • At the same time it is the very climate change that, by virtue of melting sea ice, opens up the Arctic for serious business
