Abstract
The Circumpolar Information Guide on Mining recognizes that indigenous and northern communities are central stakeholders for a sustainable Arctic. The purpose of the Guide is to increase the ability of Indigenous peoples and residents of northern communities to understand, influence and participate in mining-related processes in order to maximize benefits and minimize negative effects on their lives, culture, land and the environment.
