Abstract
This report provides an overview of proposals made by CAFF countries for new and/or enlarged protected areas in the Arctic. Some proposals from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are also mentioned. The report also focuses on the roles of coastal and marine protected areas and transboundary co-operation. 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.
