Front Cover
Office for Official Publications of the European Communities, 2004 - Nature - 58 pages
Much of the Arctic landscape remains undisturbed and it is one the world's remaining areas where indigenous people's pursue traditional lifestyles. However, it is coming under increasing pressure from unsustainable development, land fragmentation, climate change and pollution as Europe's dependence on the region's resources (including fish, timber and minerals) grows. This report has been jointly prepared by UNEP and the European Environment Agency to raise awareness amongst policy makers and the public about European policy actions in the Arctic , and it is hoped it will contribute to the implementation of the EU's second northern dimension action plan.
