Arctic Maritime Health Security Indicators Workshop

March 21 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Arctic Maritime Health Security Indicators Workshop

As the Arctic maritime domain continues to increase in accessibility, so too do the health security threats associated with increased maritime commerce. Robust monitoring and risk assessments are needed to predict and prevent health security crises before they occur. However, little research has focused on the intersections between increased maritime shipping in the Arctic and health security. Furthermore, conventional health security assessments are focused on the country-level, and may lack the indicators particularly relevant to health security at the local community-level. This is problematic, as coastal Arctic communities are at the front lines of increased maritime shipping and play a critical role in regional health security.

The Ted Stevens Center for Arctic Security Studies invites you to participate in a 1-day workshop focused on identifying the indicators of community-level health security as it relates to increased maritime commerce in the Arctic. This workshop will inform a pilot test aimed at developing an Arctic Maritime Health Security Risk Index.

This workshop is open to all attendees of the Arctic Science Summit Week in Edinburgh. We are particularly interested in seeking perspectives from those who have lived and/or worked in Arctic coastal communities. The workshop will be capped at 30 participants. Please complete the sign-up form at the following link to participate in the workshop: https://forms.osi.apps.mil/r/qDjhRz3Ak8. You will receive a confirmation email that you are signed up for the workshop.

PLEASE NOTE, this is not a registration link for ASSW, you must register separately for the conference.
