The Arctic is becoming increasingly significant. The regions environment is altering rapidly, and cli-mate change is already a reality. While this creates challenges, it also provides new opportunities. Se-curity and sustainable development in the Arctic are vital. Arctic nations are particularly responsible for collaborating on enduring solutions. Black carbon emissions are a major contributing factor to warming in the Arctic. Technologies which can effectively reduce emissions already exist, and they not only offer health and environmental benefits, but economic ones too. What steps need to be taken in the Arctic to respond to current challenges? What examples of clean energy exist in the region? What needs to be done to facilitate the transition to cleaner fuel, particularly liquefied natural gas in Arctic shipping?
