Abstract

The future for reindeer husbandry in the Barents region is highly dependent on the availability of grazing land. extensive oil and gas development will likely lead to loss of vital ranges, in particular coastal summer pastures and calving grounds. Reindeer husbandry and Barents 2030 presents new potential scenarios for reindeer husbandry, combining the GLOBIO methodology for mapping loss of biodiversity with the extensive oil and gas development pictured in the barlindhaug scenarios. This lecture is about the report prepared by the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry in collaboration with NORUT, UNEP-GRID Arendal and others.
