    (Arctic Council Secretariat, 2021-05) Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME)
    On May 20, 2021, the Arctic Council and the Arctic Regional Hydrographic Commission (ARHC) released a Joint Statement on Hydrography in the Arctic Region.

The Joint Statement recommends that the governments of the Arctic States review, update and improve existing, and collect new, bathymetry and hydrographic data in the Arctic region.

The Joint Statement identifies several ways each of these recommendations may be pursued.
