Abstract
The Arctic zone is a unique part of Russia. This is a territory of a specific type of development and plays a strategic role from the point of view of national security and economy. The Arctic zone takes up 52.2% of the territory of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and is characterized by distinct extreme conditions of human activities. The most pressing problems include absence of developed transport infrastructure, unsatisfactory state of power supply, decrease in the rate of production of all economic sectors and decline of traditional kinds of subsistence activities. This results in a decrease in the population of the Arctic zone. The population of 13 Arctic districts has decreased 2.2 times since 1990: from 148.2 thousand people in 1990 to 67,714 people as per January 01, 2019. The article describes traditional subsistence activities of indigenous peoples in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). The authors analyzed regional regulatory documents dedicated to Arctic indigenous peoples, as well as to their traditional subsistence activities, reviewed the current state of reindeer herding, hunting provision and fishery in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), identified the key problems, and proposed main ways of correcting them. They used methods of comparative analysis, statistical analysis, and analysis of the corpus juris to resolve these problems. The study is novel in the development of a set of business recommendations aimed at creating conditions for a transit to sustainable development of traditional subsistence activities in the republic.
