Safe and Sustainable Arctic Shipping Management and Development presents insight into the Arctic and shipping and natural resource exploration in the region. The book discusses the challenges in harnessing the Arctic's potential, and making it sustainable and productive. It enables both researchers and practitioners to apply the theoretical knowledge obtained in the field to solve challenging issues. The book focuses on the management and development of Arctic shipping, including the use of shipping for natural resource exploration and the socio-economic implications of shipping activities. Sections cover the geography, planning, environmental, economics, management, policy, regulations, and governance.

The book also closely integrates the implications of Arctic activities with indigenous ways of life. It is divided into four major sections, namely Theoretical Settings, Economic Opportunities and Risks, Operational Challenges, and Environmental and Social Implications. This book is a quality companion to any researchers, policymakers, and industrial practitioners involved in transport and environmental planning and management as a solid platform for further research, planning, and development of appropriate policies and practices.
