Energy development on indigenous lands - Final IndGov/TriArc workshop

This workshop is the final workshop organized by the TriArc and IndGov projects on the interaction between industry and indigenous peoples, this time with a special emphasis on green energy development. The workshop takes place October 14th at The Fram Centre – the High North Research Centre for Climate and the Environment.

Fakken Wind Farm, Vannøya, Norway. 
Recent conflicts around wind power development in valuable nature areas in Norway has put the spotlight on the difficult balance between combating climate change and protection of biodiversity. In the case of reindeer husbandry and other indigenous land use, the new green power developments also represent additional pressure on already strained pastures and resources.

The workshop will facilitate dialogue and mutual learning across sectors and cases, with a special emphasis on learning from relevant Swedish and Canadian cases. Scientific expertise will be connected with stakeholders and industry in Norway, Sweden and Canada.

We welcome indigenous actors, politicians, industry representatives, and researchers and scientists interested in environmental governance to the workshop. The second part of the workshop will be in Norwegian for invited local stakeholders.

As access to The Fram Centre is limited, be sure to register by contacting elisabeth.olsen@niku.no before October 7th. Lunch is included. A more detailed program will soon be presented on the projects’ websites.
