A Circumpolar Inuit Response to the Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment (AMSA). A Proposal presented to the Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG).
Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC)
"This document is a proposal to the Arctic Council's Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG) that highlights some activities that the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) believes are essential to undertake pursuant to, and as a result of, the release of the Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment (AMSA). The AMSA was undertaken under the auspices of the Arctic Council's working group, Protection of the Marine Environment (PAME). The substance of the proposed work is to undertake an initial response to those AMSA recommendations that directly impact Inuit living in four (4) of the eight (8) countries that make up the Arctic Council region. They are Russia, USA, Canada, and Greenland. This proposal describes how this initial substantive response to the AMSA will be undertaken." /.../
