ARCTIC Council Task Force Meeting

The aim of the Task Force Meeting was to discuss further work and preparation for the ARCTIC Council Meeting in Stockholm in March.

The Arctic Council is a high-level intergovernmental forum established by the Ottawa Declaration on 1996 to promote cooperation, coordination, and interaction among the Arctic States.

The Council works with the involvement of the Arctic Indigenous communities and other Arctic inhabitants on common Arctic issues, in particular issues of sustainable development and environmental protection in the Arctic.

There are 8 members states, all of which have territory in the Arctic (marked dark blue on map).
