Communities of Alaska's North Slope
EPA Region 10 has made a commitment to improve our working relationships with the communities of the North Slope. To fulfill that commitment, we developed the North Slope Communications Protocol (PDF) (44 pp. 817K).
Regional Information About...
The Protocol is a guide for Region 10 programs to foster more effective and meaningful communications with North Slope communities. It takes into account the communities’ unique geography, culture, and environmental issues. The Protocol was developed with information received from residents and representatives in North Slope communities. The Protocol seeks to lay out sensible processes, practical tools, and helpful background information to prepare Region 10 employees for successful community involvement on the North Slope.
We hope that this will be a good beginning to improve our communications and relationships with the communities of the North Slope. The Protocol is intended to be a living document which will be revised as needed over time.
