Through six working groups, each dealing with a specific subject, the Arctic Council seeks to evolve a consensus on the activities that can be carried out in the Arctic region in keeping with the overall objective of conserving the pristine environment, biodiversity, and the interests and well-being of the local populations.
All decision-making happens through consensus between the eight members, and in consultation with the permanent participants.
Currently, the U.S.A is planning to beef up its Arctic presence to keep Russia and China’s aggressive behaviour in check in the region.
