MetadataShow full item record
Under the Arctic Environment Protection Strategy and the Arctic Council, the Arctic countries have agreed on a “framework for taking early cooperative action on emergency prevention, preparedness and response in the Arctic.” The Emergency Prevention, Preparedness and Response working group (EPPR) was established by the declaration on the protection of the Arctic environment signed June 14, 1991 in Rovaniemi, Finland, as a network for information on Arctic accidents and for facilitating co operation among the Arctic states in the areas of emergency prevention, preparedness and response. This document, previously referred to as the Arctic Guide, was developed by EPPR and has been maintained to provide a way to keep the Arctic countries informed on EPPR arrangements and to identify contact information and available resources.
