LOVISA Workshop Report: Local Knowledge in Environmental and Social Impact Assessment

 

This report presents the findings of the LOVISA project that focused on inclusion of local communities and Indigenous peoples in social and environmental impact assessments in the (European) Arctic. The report is based on a workshop that was held in December 2019 in Nuuk (Greenland) to facilitate an exchange between Indigenous and local actors from Greenland, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The report reflects the workshop discussions, ideas, and recommendations for developing current impact assessment practices.
