cover: Nearly 30 years ago, an international structure was set into place with the capacity to coordinate effective environmental cooperation in the Arctic. Practically, the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) is to monitor and assess the levels, trends, and effects of pollutants and climate change on the Arctic ecosystem and the people living there, especially the indigenous peoples. A review of that programme is presented on p. 8.
