The Arctic Council is a high level intergovernmental forum to provide a means for promoting cooperation, coordination and interaction among the Arctic States, with the involvement of the Arctic Indigenous communities and other Arctic inhabitants. Ecosystem Based Management, a.k.a the Ecosystem Approach to Management (EA), was adopted as an overarching principle and approach by Arctic Council Ministers in 2004 as part of the Arctic Marine Strategic Plan. The PAME Working Group of the Arctic Council established in 2007 an EA Expert Group (EA-EG) to better focus its work on EA within its mandate for the protection of the Arctic marine environment. The members of the EA-EG collectively contribute to the integration of EA implementation into the overall work of the Arctic Council. The EA-EG 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. To this end, the EA-EG has recently produced the “Guidelines for Implementing an Ecosystem Approach to Management of Arctic Marine Ecosystems”.
