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.
