Population distribution in the circumpolar Arctic, by country (including indigenous population)

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Arctic Graphics
Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The Arctic represents one of the most desolate and sparsely populated areas in the World, with few economic opporunities and inhostile climate. This map - based on the Arctic Human Development Report (AHDR) definition of the Arctic, presents the distribution by country. Note that except for Greenland and Northern Canada, indigenous peoples form a minority, though they can form the majority in local communities. They are therefore particularly vulnerable to increased immigration by non-indigenous people as a result of industrial development, and to increased competition for resources.
