New Arctic Strategy and SDG 2030

The SDG 2030 agenda will form the basis for the work of developing a new Arctic strategy for the Kingdom of Denmark.

The Kingdom of Denmark's current Strategy for the Arctic 2011-2020 expires and a new Arctic Strategy 2021-2030 is being prepared. The new Arctic strategy works to ensure that the UN's global goals increasingly constitute a frame of reference for the work.

It is an important priority for the work on the Arctic strategy that the development in the Arctic takes place for the benefit of the region's inhabitants. Within the framework of the Arctic Council, the Kingdom promotes this approach, among other things. by ensuring the involvement of "permanent participants" in the work of the Council and prioritizing sustainable economic development in the Arctic.
