ABSTRACT

The Arctic region is the region that reacts most sensitively to climate change and has the most serious impact from environmental destruction. As natural resource development becomes easier and logistics routes passing through the Arctic Ocean are activated, non-Arctic states, especially China, India, and Japan's strategies for entering the Arctic are diversifying at the national level. The reality is that the geographical space of the Arctic Ocean is expanding beyond the environmental, social, and economic dimensions to the military and security dimensions. International attention is focused on sustainable development of the Arctic Circle. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate Arctic society, which forms loose forms of governance, as three indicators of organization, institutionalization, implementation, and project evaluation, and to shed light on the roles and challenges of Arctic society for sustainable development. In addition, in the absence of domestic research on SDGs in the Arctic Circle, I would like to find answers to the following questions. First, what is sustainable development and what does it mean? Second, what is sustainable development and what should it look like in the current Arctic situation? How useful and viable are SDGs in the Arctic Circle? Lastly, what are the roles and tasks of the Arctic Council for the sustainable development of the Arctic?
