Abstract

This chapter summarizes and critically reviews existing scholarship, knowledge, and practices regarding the measurement of socio-economic impacts of resource development on Northern communities. In this chapter, we review frameworks and systems of indicators in multiple Arctic jurisdictions, providing description of key studies and sites. Focusing on socio-economic impact assessment pro - cedures, namely measurement systems and methodologies, our guiding question is: What work has been done to allow the measurement of social and economic impacts of resource development on Northern communities? To answer this, we outline existing practices in Arctic regions, identify successes and barriers to sustainable development, and reflect on the future of impact measurement and indicators.
