The flora and fauna of the Arctic

Загрязнители

While most regions of the Arctic are far removed from large industrialized areas, the environment in the high North carries the traces of human-induced pollution – from soot to plastics, from methane to pesticides.

Народы Арктики

The Arctic is home to almost four million people today – Indigenous people, more recent arrivals, hunters and herders living on the land, and city dwellers.

Климат

The temperatures in the Arctic continue to rise at more than twice the global annual average, which drives many of the changes underway in the Arctic.

Океан

The Arctic States hold a responsibility to safeguard the future development of the region and to develop models for stewardship of the marine environment.

Международное сотрудничество

The establishment of the Arctic Council was considered an important milestone enhancing cooperation in the circumpolar North. In the Ottawa Declaration, the eight Arctic States established the Council as a high-level forum to provide means for promoting cooperation, coordination and interaction among the Arctic States – including the full consultation and full involvement of Arctic Indigenous communities and other Arctic inhabitants.
