Abstract

This report is one of deliverables of the project “Megaprojects in the Circumpolar North”, focusing on the social and economic impacts of megaprojects on local communities. The report includes recommendations on how to improve the planning procedure and maximise positive effects while minimizing the negative. Available research findings on socio-economic impacts of Kárahnjúkar hydro project and Alcoa Fjarðaál aluminium plant in East Iceland are compiled here. A research on the impacts on these small communities in East Iceland was carried out during the period 2004-2009.
