Changing water in the Arctic
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Water is the most important resource for human beings and non‐human beings alike, and a precondition for life, and health and well‐being. It is also inspired by how water is in a changing state from solid (ice or snow) to liquid (water) which exposes a range of issues for Arctic futures, for resilience, adaptation, transformation –in all, human and environmental security. Furthermore, although water is a renewable natural resource, there is a scarcity of fresh water in many, if not even most, parts of the globe due to population pressures, environmental degradation and climate change(s). Finally, as a consequence of all this, water is strategic resource causing competition and conflicts, and as seen as an attractive product for commercialization by private companies.
