Circumpolar Protected Areas Network (CPAN) Home

Sweden, Photo: Sander van der Werf/Shutterstock.comSweden, Photo: Sander van der Werf/Shutterstock.comThe Circumpolar Protected Areas Network (CPAN) was operational from 1996-2010 and was designed to oversee and advance the CPAN program and provide the CAFF Board with advice on needed actions. It aimed to ensure sufficient protection of all habitat types in the Arctic.


CAFF's protected areas work has since been picked up in other projects and programs including the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program and the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment. CPAN is now dormant.

 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.
