    AOR is a two-phased project lead by the working group PAME (Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment)and intends to analyze the status and trends in the Arctic marine environment (AME); review global and regional measures in place for the protection and sustainable use of the Arctic and provide advice to Arctic Council ministers in early 2013 as to how the management of the AME can be strengthened. Phase I (2009-2011) of the project focuses on information gathering and outreach and outlines existing measures. Phase II (2011) will analyze the information collected in Phase I with an emphasis on areas where the Arctic Council can effectively add value to the existing mechanisms of governance for the Arctic marine environment.
