CAFF Progress Report, presented to the Senior Arctic Officials in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russian Federation, on 12-14 October 2005. CAFF has been very productive this year in executing mandates issued from the Reykjavik Declaration and the SAO Report to Ministers November 2004. There has been a strong focus on establishing cooperation with international conventions and organizations outside the Arctic Council. CAFF is increasing the level of cooperation with other Working Groups, and participating now in the Focal Point for ACIA follow-up. The number of meetings where CAFF is expected to participate continues therefore to increase, as does the workload and travel of the CAFF Secretariat. However, the CAFF Secretariat continues to face a very serious financial situation with country contributions having remained unchanged since 1996; and a support staff shortage with only one 20-hour a week administrative assistant providing office support.
