This report provides an overview of proposals made by CAFF countries for new and/or enlarged protected areas in the Arctic.

Together with the report on the State of Protected Areas in the Circumpolar Arctic 1994 (CAFF Habitat Conservation Report No. 1), this report is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the present situation with regard to the present conservation status of habitat in the Arctic.
