Session VII: Arctic seaways

Session format: panel debate

New sailing lanes and transport routes bring opportunities and business growth in the coastal communities. Inaccurate marine mapping, insufficient capacities within search and rescue (SAR), and use of traditional heavy oil as fuel poses challenges for increased maritime traffic in the north. However, international cooperation within SAR, advances within communication, new technology and innovative green solutions like alternative fuel and hybrid technology give hope for a sustainability evolution with low carbon shipping. Communication and connectivity, including satellites, and broadband offer great opportunities. New infrastructure and large data cable projects are already being processed. How can big data, autonomous research vessels and smart censoring secure sailing and other activities along the coast and on the high seas? In the recent few years, there has been a rapid increase in arctic cruise tourism. What are the challenges and opportunities for arctic communities? Do we have the adequate infrastructures in place to ensure sustainability and safe sailing?
