World Policy On Air, Ep. 94: Challenges and Opportunities in the Arctic

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

As the effects of climate change pose new challenges in the Arctic, melting ice and warmer temperatures also present economic opportunities. On the latest episode of World Policy On Air, Inuuteq Holm Olsen, the first Greenland representative at the Danish embassy in Washington, explains how the semi-autonomous nation is working to balance an emerging tourism industry and natural resource extraction with environmental sustainability.
