Arctic environment: European perspectives Why should Europe care?
The Arctic's unique nature is still relatively undisturbed. However, it is under increasing threat from pollution, climate change and unsustainable development. The peoples of the industrialised countries outside of the Arctic are the primary beneficiaries of Arctic resources. These same countries, including those in the EU, are a major source of pollution and other problems in the Arctic region. Indigenous peoples have lived in the Arctic and utilised its resources in a sustainable manner for millennia. Today they receive a relatively small share of the benefits of its exploitation, yet incur the greatest negative effects.
