Arktisk råd i nasjonal forvaltning (The Arctic Council in Norwegian environmental management)

FNI Report 2/2018. Lysaker, FNI, 2018, 56 p.

The purpose of this report is to analyse the relationship between the production and systematisation of knowledge on the Arctic (including policy recommendations arising from this work) and the Norwegian management system (overseen by, among other bodies, the Norwegian Environment Agency and Ministry of Climate and Environment). The report focuses on three of the Arctic Council’s working groups. 1) Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP); 2) Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF); and 3) Protection of Arctic Marine Environment (PAME). In conclusion, the report presents two central objectives and six concrete steps to strengthen the relationship between the working groups and Norwegian government.
