MetadataShow full item record
In 1996, after several years of cooperation and scientific strategy development, Canada, the Kingdom of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and the United States established the Arctic Council to provide a systematic approach to handling issues affecting the Arctic region. The Arctic Council was created with four working groups assigned to undertake specific areas of work. The Emergency Prevention, Preparedness and Response (EPPR) Working Group was formed to deal with the prevention, preparedness and response to environmental emergencies in the Arctic. EPPR focuses primarily on prevention and preparedness strategies for radionuclides and oil and gas transportation and extraction. The goal of the EPPR Working Group is to contribute to the protection of the Arctic environment from the threat or impact that may result for an accidental release of pollutants or radionuclides.
