Bibliographic description: Vasil`tsov, V.S., Yashalova, N.N., Novikov, A.V. Climate and environmental risks in the development of Arctic coastal territories. Arktika: ekologiya i ekonomika. [Arctic: Ecology and Economy], 2021, vol. 11, no. 3, pp. 341-352. DOI: 10.25283/2223-4594-2021-3-341-352. (In Russian).


The authors have analyzed the essence, structure, rates of negative trends in the Arctic coastal zone, risk factors, the consequences of climate change. They have outlined ways to mitigate and overcome the trends, paying particular attention to the elimination of objects of accumulated environmental damage in the Russian Arctic zone. The article clarifies the concept and methods of assessing climate risk. The researchers have carried out a PEST-analysis for the factors of influence of the external environment on the infrastructure formation of the Arctic coastal territories and proposed to use the mechanism of public-private partnership, develop renewable energy sources, conduct ethnological expertise of projects, create special units for managing climate risks in stakeholder companies.
