Canadian Arctic Marine Biodiversity Plan 2014-2017

The Canadian Arctic Marine Biodiversity Plan (Canadian Marine Plan) is the Canadian contribution to the Arctic Council Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna’s Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program, Arctic Marine Biodiversity Monitoring Plan.

The overall objective of the Canadian Arctic Marine Biodiversity Plan (Canadian Marine Plan) is to improve our ability to detect and understand the causes of long-term changes in the structure and function of Canadian arctic marine ecosystems. The Canadian Marine Plan integrates existing scientific and community-based marine biodiversity data and information.

Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan

The CBMP Terrestrial Expert Monitoring Group (CBMP-TEMG) has developed the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan (CBMP-Terrestrial Plan/the Plan) as the framework for coordinated, long-term Arctic terrestrial biodiversity monitoring. The goal of the CBMP-Terrestrial Plan is to improve the collective ability of Arctic traditional knowledge (TK) holders, northern communities, and scientists to detect, understand and report on long-term change in Arctic terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity.

This plan outlines ongoing efforts to establish and maintain steering groups to implement the monitoring plans and manage and provide that information for ongoing and future assessments of Arctic biodiversity.

Arctic Freshwater Biodiversity Monitoring Plan

This document develops an Arctic Freshwater Biodiversity Monitoring Plan (The Freshwater Plan) that details the rationale and framework for improvements related to the monitoring of freshwaters of the circumpolar Arctic, including ponds, lakes, their tributaries and associated wetlands, as well as rivers, their tributaries and associated wetlands. The monitoring framework aims to facilitate circumpolar assessments by providing Arctic countries with a structure and a set of guidelines for initiating and developing monitoring activities that employ common approaches and indicators. The Freshwater Plan is part of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) of the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) that is working with partners to harmonize and enhance long-term Arctic biodiversity monitoring efforts in order to facilitate more rapid detection, communication and response to significant trends and pressures.

Appendix A - Scoping for Resilience and Management of Arctic Wetland

Appendix A Report of Scientific Literature Review 1Wetlands constitute a large part of the Arctic and their role for sustainable development is critical, as they are directly related to climate change and adaptation, biodiversity, ecosystem services, and the livelihood of indigenous and local peoples. The effects of climate change on Arctic wetlands, their biodiversity and functioning are still little understood but can be expected to be considerable. A better understanding is needed in order to increase the resilience of wetland ecosystems. This is one of the reasons why CAFF has undertaken an initiative on enhancing engagement in relation to the roles and functions of Arctic wetlands as a resource to support sustainable development and resilience in the Arctic. The overall goal of the project is to enhance the state of knowledge on resilience and management of Arctic wetlands in response to global change, including changes in climate and land use. The goal includes producing policy recommendations to support measures and further develop management strategies to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services including reduction of anthropogenically induced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as improving climate adaptation, and exploring possibilities for sustainable use, especially for indigenous peoples.

Some of the traditional use of wetlands has been modified becauseof changes in land area access. Wetlands are important for both the reindeer and humans and animportant factor for reindeer herding strategies. The value of wetlands are defined with a holisticapproach were the wetlands characteristics, connectivity, surrounding area and external factors, asthe weather conditions, determines the value and most strategic and sustainable use of the wetland.

This is arguably even more the case with Arctic wetlands, which while making up a large portion of terrestrial area in the Arctic, are recently gaining attention from wetlands advocates such as the Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention, NGOs such as Wetlands International, and other bodies with a wetlands focus.

Sustainable Management and Resilience of Arctic Wetlands - Phase 1

wetland phase final Feb 25th 01The Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Working Group of the Arctic Council (www.caff.is) is undertaking an initiative on enhancing engagement at all levels (technical, policy, etc) in relation to the roles and functions of Arctic wetlands as a resource to support sustainable development and resilience in the circumpolar Arctic. The overall goalof the project is to develop recommendations to support policy measures and management strategies to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services. Here we report on the activities and outcomes of phase 1 of this project, which includes a survey of wetland inventories in Arctic countries and a scoping literature review of research on Arctic wetlands to identify where knowledge is currently lacking. Phase two of this project addresses itself to knowledge gaps (as identifiedin this report) pertaining to wetlands status, wetlands uses, and to regulatory and management practices, all of which are needed for developing recommendations for potential policy and management actions.
