The Portal is a joint Norwegian - Russian instrument designed for the mutual exchange and presentation of information and environmental data relevant to the management of the Barents Sea.

It is intended to serve as the future tool for updating of the recently published Norwegian - Russian environmental status report (published at the portal), and for further cooperation on ecosystem-based management of the Barents Sea.
