Northern Forum Governors’ Meeting
30 March 2017
09:00

Partnership in the Arctic is built not only at the intergovernmental level, but also at the interregional level. The Northern Forum, which brings together the governors of northern regions, is a major international nongovernmental organization. It also has observer status on the Arctic Council and consultative status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The Northern Forum is an important tool for enhancing and expanding non-political dialogue among the governors of Arctic and northern regions of various countries and the leaders of municipalities and organizations. The Northern Forum includes regions of the Russian Federation (Krasnoyarsk Territory, Chutkotka Autonomous Area, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area, Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area, Nenets Autonomous Area, Magadan Region, Primorsky Territory, and Kamchatka Region), Iceland (the city of Akureyri), the USA (Alaska), the Republic of Korea (Gangwon Province), and Finland (Lapland). Until 2013, the Northern Forum Secretariat was located in Anchorage, Alaska (USA); it is presently situated in Yakutsk (Sakha Republic (Yakutia)). Krasnoyarsk Territory has chaired the Northern Forum since November 2015. Issues for discussion: • Strengthening the role of the Northern Forum in Arctic collaboration • The socioeconomic development of the North and the Arctic • Improving living standards for the region’s population
