"The mandate of EPPR Working Group EPPR Working Group is to deal with the prevention, preparedness and response to environmental emergencies in the Arctic. Members of the Working Group exchange information on best practices and conducts projects (e.g. development of guidance and risk assessment methodologies, response exercises, training etc.).

In 2004, EPPR was directed by the Arctic Ministers to expand its mandate to include natural disasters." /.../
