Abstract

Natural areas and resources form the basis for many regional economies in the Arctic. Natural conditions, including climate, have been considered stable on human timescales and taken as starting points in regional development work – until recently. During the past few years the notion of a changing climate with various ecological and socio-economic impacts has made its way also to regional development strategies. Despite the common perception of climate change as completely devastating for the whole Arctic, the effects can be regionally differentiated.

This article discusses regional development related strategic planning as a forum and tool for addressing climate change. This is carried out by empirically examining the emergence of climate change as an important trend or factor in the development programmes of one region in the Arctic, Finnish Lapland, mid-1990s onwards. The review sets a background for the ways how climate change is thought to affect Lapland’s economy and society in the future, as presented in the region’s recently published Climate Change Strategy 2030. Climate change, nowadays regarded as an important trend affecting the region’s future, is expected to bring along new opportunities for Lapland and change the strategic position of the region to a more favourable one also in wider political and economic sense.

Regional development related strategic planning can, in some politicoadministrational cultures such as in Finland, serve well as a context for climate change adaptation, but the task to promote regional development can lead to less emphasis on global environmental concern and more on ensuring the auspicious development in the region.

Greece followed, inevitably, the centralized model of development: almost everything was concentrated in Athens. So, until 1964 the country had only two Universities (in Athens and Thessaloniki ). In 1972 a few small technological institutes were founded in experimental form, which, after Ovidian transformations approximated Universities in 2001(in terms of equivalence). After 1981, and mainly after 1999, the reverse tendency began: a multitude of Universities and Technological Institutes across the country. In most of the areas tertiary education institutions are now the “heavy industry”. The research focused on the west axis of Greece, but its results have a more general validity, as there is no divergence from the rest of the Greek regions. Initially, some regional inputoutput tables were compiled - something that was not available from the Statistics Service. This extremely laborious approach was carried out for the years 1995, and 1998. Likewise, the economic changes that occurred in the area as a result of the function of similar institutions of tertiary education were assessed.

Furthermore, various qualitative parameters are examined. More specifically, through primary research, questionnaires collected from six different cities, which helped to determine social differentiations. Based on the above outcomes, not only the social but also the demographic and cultural changes that came about after the creation of faculties of tertiary education were described. Then research was conducted in the archives of the cities in order to evaluate the changes in the morphology of the area (city plan, look of the city, land uses etc.).
