INTERACT WP7 Improving and harmonizing biodiversity monitoring Rif workshop report

Interact WP7 reportcoverThe International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic (INTERACT)
is an EU funded initiative working towards building capacity to help identify, understand,
predict and respond to environmental changes across the Arctic.
INTERACT Work Package (WP) 7 Improving and harmonizing biodiversity monitoring is led
by the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Arctic Council Working Group. The
overall goal of WP7 is to test the circumpolar Freshwater and Terrestrial Arctic biodiversity
monitoring plans of CAFFs cornerstone program, the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring
Program (CBMP), at INTERACT stations.
The goal of the CBMP monitoring plans is to harmonize and integrate efforts to monitor the
Arctic's living resources through a network of scientists, governments, Indigenous
organizations, and conservation groups. Through this harmonization and integration, the
monitoring plans facilitate more rapid detection, communication, and response to the
significant pressures affecting the circumpolar world.

This report describes the progress made since December 2012, when implementation of the CBMP-Freshwater Plan began.

This scientific poster, intended for presentations at conferences and meetings, provides an overview of the Arctic Freshwater Biodiversity Monitoring Plan, including the key questions, benefits, and approach.

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.

A document to describe the goals and preliminary recommendations for the Committee for Holarctic Shorebird Monitoring (CHASM), an expert working group of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP.)

This document provides an overview on the development of the Arctic Freshwater Biodiversity Monitoring Plan, produced by a Freshwater Expert Monitoring Group (FEMG) for the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP), along with timelines for development of the FEMG.

The findings of a workshop focused on fostering the development and implementation of coordinated, international research and monitoring networks for Arctic freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems and the biodiversity they support.
