The Value of the Barents Region: More than a Resource Provider offers an account of the environmental non-economic value of the Barents region from an ecological perspective. The text provides a critique of the interpretation of environmental issues as if they are economic ones. Generally conceived as a territory reach in natural resources, therefore source of economic profits, the Barents region is instead a unique natural environment worth of protection and respect. Many of its aspects, such as mire and old-growth forests, contribute to the sustainability of the whole planet. Moreover the Indigenous inhabitants of the Barents Regions, who often are not considered in the decision-making of their native land, provide an incalculable help to its wellbeing.
