Abstract
Summary: The Arctic is undergoing rapid and dramatic environmental and social transformations due to climate change. This has ramifications for the entire planet, as change spreads through interconnected global networks that are environmental, cultural, economic and political. Today, with the major thrust of research shifting away from deciphering causes and monitoring trends, the central preoccupation of a growing circle of actors has become the exploration of strategies for responding and adapting to climate change. This book brings together the concerns of leading Arctic scientists in the natural and social sciences, prominent Chukchi, Even, Inuit and Saami leaders from across the circumpolar North, and international experts in education, health and ethics. It highlights the urgent need for a sustained interdisciplinary and multi-actor approach to monitoring, managing and responding to climate change in the Arctic, and explore avenues by which this can be achieved.--Publisher's description.

Abstract
The article discusses the economic phenomenon of Arctic “islands”. These territories of the Russian Arctic are inaccessible to transport all year round and significantly differ from other regions of Russian and North European Arctic. The economy of these Arctic “islands” is examined by using the example of Nenets and Chukotka Autonomous Districts. Despite a significant “similarity of appearance” in terms of their economic and social parameters, at a closer look, these two regions show considerable internal differences. To identify them, the authors used a theoretical view of the Arctic economy as a unity of three sectors, including traditional sector, corporate (market) sector, and transfer-based (state) sector in a comparative analysis. Each sector has its key contradictions, structure and its own trajectory of evolution. The corporate sector in the economy of Nenets Autonomous District is significantly younger than the one in Chukotka, since the oil and gas development began there comparatively recently. A relatively long-standing gold mining operations in Chukotka allows to refer this Arctic region to the old industrial areas. The profitability of gold production there is significantly lower than the one of the Nenets oil. Therefore, the authors propose to refer the economy of Nenets Autonomous District to the rent-based model, while the economy of Chukotka Autonomous District is referred to the transfer-based model. The differences in the transfer-based sectors of the two Districts are affected not only by the variance in the amounts of regional budgets, but also by the urban structure of population settlement, which is centralized in Nenets Autonomous District and polycentric in Chukotka. This means that the areas of health care, culture in Nenets Autonomous District are mostly bound to Naryan-Mar, its capital, while social infrastructure facilities in Chukotka are substantially decentralized and scattered across the regional and district centers.

Abstract
Today, as Greenland focuses on more economic and cultural autonomy, the continued development of societal infrastructure systems is vital. At the same time, pressure is put on the systems by a lack of financial resources and locally based professional competences as well as new market-based forms of organization. Against this background, the article discusses the challenges facing Greenland's self-rule in relation to further develop the existing water and wastewater systems so that they can contribute to the sustainable development of Greenland. The article reviews the historical development of the water supply and wastewater system. This leads to an analysis of the sectorisation, which in recent decades has reorganized the Greenlandic infrastructures, and of how this process is influencing local sustainable development. The article discusses the socio-economic and human impacts and points to the need for developing the water and sanitation system to support not only hygiene and health, but also local sustainable development.
