Data-driven Subnational Decision-making in the Arctic: the power of indigenous voices and data supporting the green transition

  • 1. University of Lapland


This Policy Brief summarizes the main outputs and preliminary findings of the Arctic PASSION project’s work related to enhancing evidence-based decision-making at the local and regional level in the Arctic, with respect to two themes:

1) the state of inclusion of Indigenous knowledge in sub-national decision-making (including the patterns of interactions between Indigenous Peoples and local/regional policymakers); and

2) data availability, needs and gaps with respect to managing and planning the green transition.

The two topics are part of a selection of themes that interest local and regional governments and Arctic PASSION researchers. A complete overview of the findings is provided in the related Policy Paper.


This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101003472
