The Association of World Reindeer Herders is Observer to the Arctic Council and both WRH and the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry played key roles in bringing this  mid term report to the Ministers.

Norwegian Minister for Foreign Affairs Jonas Gahr Støre was on hand for the meeting and the EALÁT book was reported in his speech to the opening of the meeting.
