Northern Review: A Multidisciplinary Journal of the Arts and Social Sciences of the North, n18 p64-69 Sum 1998
Limited sunlight, low temperatures, and slow natural growth make the Arctic environment extremely vulnerable to pollution. Circumpolar nations formed the Arctic Council to cooperate in promoting sustainable development in the region. An integrated approach is required, encompassing social conditions, health, culture, education, and environmental protection. Contributions of grass roots organizations, local communities and indigenous people are indispensable. (TD)
