The Ecosystem-Based Management expert group, which started its work in 2011, has developed four background documents and a final report addressing the group’s recommendations, which include a policy commitment, a definition of EBM in the Arctic, a set of principles for EBM in the Arctic, and a set of high-priority activities for coordinating and improving the EBM work of the Arctic Council. Examples include the need to develop an overarching EBM goal for the Arctic Council, implement international EBM initiatives, and ensure coordination and reporting for EBM activities of the Arctic Council and its working groups. The Expert Group concluded its work by delivering its final report to the Kiruna Ministerial Meeting in May 2013.
