Forum Goals

The purpose of the Arctic NGO Forum is to:

  • Promote better cooperation among NGOs to increase their effectiveness and influence with decision-makers, both public and private;
  • Increase NGOs’ ability to use scarce resources in Arctic fora by sharing knowledge and information, and building capacity;
  • Create opportunities for understanding and dialogue between NGOs and Indigenous and local people in the Arctic;
  • Raise awareness about the threats to the Arctic environment and their potential solutions; and
  • Identify emerging issues and place them on the public agenda.
