Arctic Frontiers - Governor Igor Orlov

For the first time during this year’s Arctic Frontiers conference, we conducted a series of short interviews with some of the many speakers and participants at the conference. This project is a collaboration between The Arctic Institute, Arctic Frontiers, and the GeoNorth program. In this interview, we hear from Igor Orlov, Governor of Russia's Arkhangelsk region, about the historic and future role of Arkhangelsk in the opening of the Arctic, and the importance of ensuring that benefits of Arctic development accrue to all residents. We're grateful to the Governor for permitting us to publish his first-ever English-language interview. The podcasts are available on iTunes via The Arctic Institute, as well as on the Arctic Frontiers website. You can find a list of all podcasts here.
