Eas­tern Sval­bard

The cur­rent dis­cus­sion of kee­ping eas­tern Sval­bard open for tou­rists or clo­sing it lar­ge­ly has been descri­bed pre­vious­ly on this site. Now the Sys­sel­man­nen has published his recom­men­da­ti­on for the upco­ming law­gi­ving pro­cess. Remar­kab­ly, he has cho­sen not to recom­mend the ori­gi­nal pro­po­sal, which sug­gested to clo­se eas­tern Sval­bard with the excep­ti­on of 16 desi­gna­ted landing sites / are­as. The Sys­sel­man­nen con­siders this approach too strict and not suf­fi­ci­ent­ly backed up by strong argu­ments.

A final decis­i­on is to be made by the govern­ment in Oslo.

Accor­ding to the ori­gi­nal pro­po­sure, tou­rist landings in eas­tern Sval­bard would have been rest­ric­ted to the green are­as. The red coast­li­ne would have been for­bidden.
