Draft SDWG Energy Report to Ministers January 2009
Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG)
This report is not intended as a comprehensive assessment of Arctic energy resources, nor of the impacts of Arctic energy development on the natural and human environments in the circumpolar region. Rather, it is intended as an overview report on the Council’s cooperation in the field of Arctic energy so as to allow Arctic Council Ministers to take stock of past activities and to make some strategic decisions about future cooperative activities. In this sense, the report is on an overview of the broad subject of cooperation on Arctic energy issues.
