Chapter Summary

This chapter examines how the guidelines for environmental impact assessment in the Arctic were adopted, what their basic content is and whether and how they have made a difference in EIA practice in the region. It takes up the future of the Guidelines with particular reference to how they should be developed. The chapter presents a brief account of the history of international Arctic cooperation is in order. With the increasing EIA decision-making power transferred to the Arctic region, it would be important to engage persons who have experience of dealing with Arctic EIA in the work of the project. It is this element of learning by exchanging good practices - an approach by which the guidelines was drawn up - which makes it possible to also improve the quality and update the instrument, provided that the political will to do so exists.
