The Challenges of a Changing Arctic

*This event is by invitation only

The Arctic icepack is melting, opening up the top of the world to ocean shipping and mineral, gas, and oil exploration. Russia, Denmark, Norway, Canada, and the United States are laying claim to hundreds of thousands of square miles of the Arctic region. Admiral Robert J. Papp, Jr., USCG (Ret.), US Special Representative for the Arctic and 24th Commandant of the US Coast Guard, will discuss why the Arctic region is the last global frontier and a region with enormous and growing geostrategic, economic, climate, environmental, and national strategic implications for the United States and the world.

Admiral Robert J. Papp, U.S. Special Representative to the Arctic at the U.S. Department of State and 24th Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, will speak on the geostrategic, economic, climate, environment, and national security implications arising from the melting polar ice in the Arctic.
