Arctic Under Attack

ARCTIC UNDER ATTACK

THE ARCTIC MELT IS A WAKE UP CALL

NOT A BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

Climate change effects and growing competition for access to the Arctic and its natural resources, and increasing economic activities, have brought risks to the region, including challenges to the environment and human security

As a result of melting ice, new navigation routes will open and new fishing grounds and natural resources could lead to increased human activity and environmental challenges in this region

With climate change advancing rapidly, especially in the Arctic, attention needs to be focused on how to devise and implement a conservation regime for resources in the Arctic, especially in waters that are increasingly accessible

Our priority should be the preservation of what is still pristine nature up there and not about how to exploit new available resources. The waters under the ice cap have not been accessible for more than 800.000 years, and of course we must take the responsibility before it is too late to protect these sensitive ecosystems

Marco Affronte, MEP
