Nordregio researchers Timothy Heleniak and Justine Ramage will present at the “Population Dynamics and Climate Implications in the Arctic” webinar. They will participate in a panel discussion on Arctic Population Dynamics and share their insights based on Nordregio projects ”Polar Peoples in the Future: Projections of the Arctic Populations” and “Atlas of population, society and economy in the Arctic”.
The webinar will provide a forum for experts and attendees to:
- Identify human geography data which provides a foundation for examining the changing environment in the Arctic
- Explore Arctic demographic trends, including outmigration, urbanization, and settlements, and their broader impacts
- Discuss participatory and other local mapping processes conducted with indigenous peoples to better understand human security issues in the Arctic region
Webinar speakers and the WWHGD Working Group Support Team will highlight and share relevant methods and data during the event. You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other participants, share data, and pose questions to the speakers.
The webinar is sponsored by the World-wide Human Geography Data Working Group and hosted by the Office of the Geographer of the U.S. State Department. The WWHGD is co-led by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Department of State.
