Wind-Power Park near Kiruna, Sweden, the day after the Arctic Council Ministerial May 15, 2013

Climate Change was a key topic at the Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting. All 8 Arctic countries' Ministers demonstrated commitment, including a strong statement from US Foreign Minister John F. Kerry, to reduce climate gas emissions, including Short-lived Climate Pollutants. During the Kiruna Ministerial Meeting 15 May Arctic Ministers signed the Kiruna Declaration, Vision for the Arctic, Senior Arctic Officials Report to Ministers, and an Agreement on Cooperation on Marine Oil Pollution Preparedness and Response in the Arctic. In addition, several scientific assessments and reports by the working groups, task forces, and expert groups of the Arctic Council were also approved.
