The Arctic Library digital platform, which contains the most complete database on construction and landscaping in the Arctic, in particular, architectural projects for permafrost zones and information about the main market players, has started work. This was announced on Wednesday by Maxim Dankin, Deputy Director for Regional Development of the information and analytical Center of the State Commission for the Development of the Arctic.

"The Arctic Library has opened. This is an online platform that gathers into a single knowledge base Russian and international approaches, experience in working with the urban and settlement environment of the Arctic and northern territories, as well as new technological solutions developed for the North," the agency interlocutor said.

Users can get acquainted on the platform with the base of architectural and planning solutions, examples of environmental improvement of settlements in the Arctic and northern regions of Russia and the world, as well as new technologies for construction and landscaping, for example, frost-resistant materials.

For convenience, filters have been developed by directions, deadlines and degree of implementation, and implemented projects can be studied separately on the online map.

In addition, the Arctic Library will host all documents, development strategies, regulations, monographs and articles about the development of Arctic cities, as well as information about companies and developers who are engaged in this work. "The replenished base of key players in the Arctic market simplifies the problem when searching for contractors for settlement administrations," said Dankin.

At the end of 2021, at the Arctic: Present and Future forum, the creation of the platform was announced by the head of the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation Alexey Chekunkov. According to him, this project will help to create a comfortable urban environment in Arctic settlements.
