Increasing Maritime Commerce in the Arctic: Blue economy as a catalyst for improving Arctic security

A holistic perspective on Arctic security taking into account "soft security" characteristics, such as economic, food, health, and environmental security, can be used to assess the region's overall resilience. Effective economic development is key to building regional capacity, increasing collaboration and coordination with stakeholders, and promoting safe and sustainable Arctic communities. The blue economy concept can be generally understood as the use of water resources to increase socioeconomic and human well-being, while reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. The Coast Guard can most effectively serve Arctic citizens, protect the environment, safely advance waterways management, and mitigate risk through partnerships with communities that are seeking a greater role in maritime governance by developing new technology, procedures, and infrastructure.
