Sanne Larsen

Uncertainty is an unavoidable and challenging part of assessing impacts of future development activities. It is also vital to providing transparency in the decision-making process. Dr. Sanne Vammen Larsen, a visiting Fulbright scholar at ISER, will introduce the topic and draw on research results from Denmark and Greenland to shed light on the role of uncertainty in impact assessment, its implementation in practice and the implications for various stakeholders.

Dr. Larsen, a member of the Fulbright Arctic Initiative, is an Associate Professor at the Danish Centre for Environmental Assessment at Aalborg University in Denmark. Her research is focused on environmental assessment and planning mainly in Denmark and Greenland. She is spending six weeks with ISER conducting research for an Alaska case study on how uncertainty is dealt with, including the integration of local, indigenous knowledge. Part of her Fulbright Arctic Initiative cohort is looking at the integration of local knowledge in decision-making surrounding sustainable economies.
