AMAP - Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme

Description:

It is one of five Working Groups of the Arctic Council. The primary function of AMAP is to advise the governments of the eight Arctic countries (Canada, Denmark/Greenland, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States) on matters relating to threats to the Arctic region from pollution and associated issues. AMAP has produced a series of high quality scientifically-based assessments of the pollution status of the Arctic. The AMAP assessment reports (both the popular readable versions and detailed scientific background documents) are available as electronic documents elsewhere on this website. The AMAP assessments are the result of cooperative efforts involving a large number of scientists, indigenous peoples’ representatives, and representatives of the Arctic countries and AMAP observing countries and organizations.
