On the occasion of the 20th Annual
Session of the Homeland & Global Security Forum, to be held in Geneva
(Switzerland) from October 24 to 27 2018, key stakeholders from the Maritime sector
will meet in the framework of the Club of Ports’ Special Programme to
address the economic, security and environmental issues of the Artic
Among the topics addressed :
- The consequences of the spectacular melting of the ice pack represent a real revolution for maritime transport !
- New crossings are now open creating a strategic Arctic route that will eventually compete with historic routes
- It is the whole transportation mapping that is challenged - the major Powers are already in competition
- However, the Arctic is facing a major environmental crisis: massive energy resources but in deep waters, mining operations, endangered species and biological resources, etc.
