13.10.2005 8:00

Vital Arctic Graphics is a compilation of illustrations and case studies intended to describe the Arctic, the livelihoods of arctic indigenous peoples, and the future well-being of this region.

It summarizes some of the key threats to the future sustainability of the Arctic including the rapid pace of climate change, worrying levels of persistent organic and heavy metal pollutants, and increasing natural resource exploration. The coastal regions are particularly important to the peoples of the Arctic and their current protection status is therefore given particular focus.

"Vital Arctic Graphics" was prepared by GRID-Arendal with funding from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Division of Policy Implementation.
