Ecosystem Approach to Management Documents

PAME established in 2007 an EA expert group to better focus its work on EA within its mandate for the protection of the Arctic marine environment. The scope and membership of this expert group was extended in 2011 to include the participation of relevant Arctic Council working groups addressing marine related issues, with representation from PAME, CAFF, SDWG, AMAP, permanent participants, and observers.

This joint EA-EG membership collectively contributes to the integration of EA implementation into the overall work of the Arctic Council. It also provides a mechanism to facilitate the exchange and review of information and experiences gained to support the development of a common and coordinated approach to the implementation of the EA by Arctic states.
