About ACAP

ACAP was originally founded as an Arctic Council plan to address the Arctic pollution sources identified through AMAP. It became Arctic Council's sixth permanent Working Group in 2006. It acts as a strengthening and supporting mechanism to encourage national actions to reduce emissions and other releases of pollutants. Co-operative actions will make an important and significant contribution to the overall international effort to reduce environmental damage on a global level.

ACAP currently has six projects demonstrating practical actions to reduce the pollution of the Arctic environment. ACAP works according to the Work Plan adopted by the Ministers.

New ACAP fact sheet on obsolete pesticides in the Arctic

Obsolete pesticides pose a risk to human health and the environment locally and globally. Many pesticides are found in the Arctic as a result of long-range transport in the atmosphere and water. The Arctic environment and indigenous peoples are often at greater risk of exposure to contaminants because of changing climate conditions and local dietary habits.
