Chapter Summary

This chapter summarizes the current efforts by the Arctic littoral States and the international community working together to address the needs for safe navigation before commercial shipping through the Arctic becomes feasible. Consideration is given particularly to the results of the recently concluded Arctic Council meeting and the International Maritime Organization's Maritime Safety Committee meeting to be held the week following the conference. Recognizing that the Arctic Council Ministers have approved the Assessment, including its many recommendations, the chapter indicates the current state of action on those recommendations relating to navigation that are within the remit of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The recently released Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment has made a major contribution to identifying the steps that are needed to ensure the safety, security and environmental protection of the Arctic Ocean, the Arctic people and the Arctic environment.

Keywords: Arctic Council; Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment; International Maritime Organization (IMO); safe navigation
