One important way that we do this is though the Arctic Council, a high-level intergovernmental forum to promote cooperation, coordination and interaction among the Arctic States.
With offices in every Arctic nation except Iceland, and as the sole environmental NGO with observer status on the Arctic Council, WWF is ideally positioned to work closely with these decision makers to help build sustainability into key governance choices. And with Canada taking a term as the Chair of the Arctic Council in2013, it gives us an opportunity and responsibility to make a difference.
