AMAP Assessment Report: Arctic Pollution Issues
In June 1997, AMAP delivered its assessment to Ministers at the Fourth AEPS Ministerial Conference in Alta, Norway, in the form of a report entitled ‘Arctic Pollution Issues: A State of the Arctic Environment Report’. That report was a more concise and comprehensive presentation of the full scientific and technical assessment documented in this volume. The key points of the AMAP assessment were further summarised in the ‘Executive Summary’. That Executive Summary is reproduced here to allow readers to see how some of the conclusions and recommendations contained in the various chapters of the scientific assessment have been developed into recommendations for actions directed toward Ministers and other decision makers at the political level.
