White House Releases National Strategy for Arctic Region

The announcement highlights four pillars of stewardship and protection.

The White House recently announced the administration’s Arctic Region strategy, stating, “The Arctic—home to more than four million people, extensive natural resources, and unique ecosystems—is undergoing a dramatic transformation.  Driven by climate change, this transformation will challenge livelihoods in the Arctic while at the same time creating new economic opportunities.“

As part of the stewardship and protection of the region to maintain a peaceful, stable, prosperous, and cooperative status, the White House highlighted four pillars of policy: security, climate change and environmental protection, sustainable economic development, and international cooperation and governance.

The White House stated, “This strategy recognizes that there is no bright line between foreign and domestic policy. Realizing our vision during this dynamic period will require U.S. leadership at home and abroad.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they set policy and standards for activity in the Arctic region.
  • For discernment for Administrator Richard Spinrad as he oversees the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
  • For the leaders of the U.S. Northern Command and Alaskan Command as they manage military operations in the region.
