Fossil Fuels Expert Roundtable: Producer Subsidies in the Arctic

3 September 2014 - 17:00 to 18:30

Chatham House, London


Ivetta Gerasimchuk, Senior Researcher, International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)



What are the costs of Arctic oil and gas and who is paying them? Several studies have attempted to give a range of break-even prices for Arctic oil, but the extent of government support to exploration and development has been hard to define and compare between countries. Drawing on studies from Russia and Canada, this roundtable will seek a discussion of social costs and benefits of the projects receiving government support in the Arctic, frameworks for increasing their transparency, and ways forward towards more sustainable policies in the North. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
