2015-09-30 NPA Annual Conference 2015 – State of the Region

Since the programme area analysis for the Cooperation Programme document was carried out in early 2013, the programme area has not stood still. Rapid developments are taking place, not least in the Arctic part of the area. There is a need to refresh our information.
