International organizations, public authorities, academic and business communities will coordinate approaches to develop international cooperation, consolidate efforts to ensure the sustainable development of the Arctic and to boost the living standards of the people living there. More than 25% of global oil and gas resources are concentrated in the Arctic region, covering an area of about 27 million square kilometers, experts say. Competition among the Arctic countries for access to energy resources has been growing in the recent years. The Arctic zone of the Russian Federation accounts for 11% of national income and 22% of Russian exports. The conquest of the Russian Arctic - in this photo gallery by TASS
