Alaska’s rich environment is an invaluable resource. Large expanses of the state remain untouched and nature is woven into our daily lives. Nature-based industries such as tourism, petroleum and fishing fuel our state’s economy. Understanding how to sustain these environmental resources is central to the health of Alaska and its people.
The Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) is committed to conducting and disseminating research relevant to current events within Alaska. We hope that our research will inform planning and decisions to help Alaskans to continue to realize economic and recreational benefits from its amazing environmental resources. As the range of issues covered in this edition of “Hot Topics” demonstrates, ISER’s research extends broadly over important environmental topics.
Feel free to contact our researchers with your questions. As always, ISER is here to provide relevant research to support the best policy decision making.
