The Arctic's oil and gas fields are becoming more accessible and trade routes are opening up. DW takes a closer look at some of the issues in this fragile region.

      While the Arctic Council aims to ensure sustainable development and environmental protection and has succeeded in being a high-level forum to address and solve some of these ‘common Arctic issues’, it still has no legal personality to create binding measures regarding environmental and political issues (Berkman 96).   To develop the Arctic, China will improve the capacity and capability in using applied Arctic technology, strengthen technological innovation, environmental protection, resource utilization, and development of shipping routes in the Arctic, and contribute to the economic and social development of the Arctic, improve the living conditions of the.
