Arctic Emergencies: Current and Future Risks, Mitigation, and Response Cooperation
This report represents a review of EPPR’s past work on Arctic emergencies and a look ahead to the new risks inherent in increased development and marine activity precipitated by the climactic changes taking place in the Arctic. The creation of the Task Force on Arctic Oil Spill Preparedness and Response at the 2011 Nuuk Ministerial meeting of the Arctic Council, provided a new focus for the report from that which was originally envisioned. EPPR’s goal is to support the work of the Task Force by providing a snapshot of Arctic preparedness and response capabilities, existing and emerging risks, infrastructure deficits, and the mitigation strategies which Arctic states have begun to implement. This report is thus intended to provide a contextual reference for the Task force as it begins its deliberations.
