CAFF may establish expert groups with specific mandates related to key activities.
These expert groups ensure that scientists, conservationists, and managers have a forum to promote, facilitate, and coordinate conservation, management, and research activities of mutual concern. These groups have been invaluable in synthesising, coordinating and publishing research.
CFG encourages and coordinates the conservation of Arctic flora, habitats and research activities.
It enhances the exchange of information affecting status and trends in Arctic flora.
CBird promotes, facilitates, coordinates and harmonizes seabird conservation, management and research activities among circumpolar countries and improves communication between seabird scientists and managers.
CPAN´s activities are currently reflected in other CAFF projects.
CPAN promoted the development of a protected areas network. These areas have a high probability of maintaining ecosystem health and can play an important role in identifying current and emerging issues.
