Arctic Contaminants Action Program (ACAP)
/.../ "At the request of the SAOs, and to strengthen the financing of these important ACAP initiatives, NEFCO developed the Project Support Instrument (PSI). The Ministers approved the pilot phase of the PSI in 2004. Funds have been contributed to the PSI which may serve as a source of continued support for ACAP.
