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 document details the background, purpose, development, structure and outcomes of the CBMP Terrestrial Steering Group meeting in Akureyri, Iceland February 2014 to implement the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan.

This document contains 20 abstracts from papers presented by scientists at the Alaskan Arctic Vegetation Archive meeting in Boulder, Colorado 14-16 October, 2014.

Proceedings of the Arctic Vegetation Archive to develop a global database of Arctic vegetation plots.

As part of the East Asian Flora Symposium, that took place in Vladivostok, Russia, from September 23 to 27 in 2012, a CBVM session was held on Thursday September 27. This documents provides a summary of the discussions and presentations.

A compilation of workshop papers, abstracts and summaries of the Circumboreal Vegetation Map (CBVM), the Global Research Initiative in Alpine Environments (GLORIA), the International Arctic Vegetation Database (IAVD), the red list of vascular plants and development of the Arctic Plant Portal.

This report presents an overview of CAFF work since the previous Senior Arctic Officials meeting, and a summary of the key issues facing Arctic biodiversity as discussed at the CAFF Biennial meeting.

A summary report produced by Wetlands International of the CAFF Workshop on Migratory Arctic Birds, Songli, Norway, September 10-11, 2000. The workshop aimed to facilitate improved co-ordination and collaboration among Arctic countries sharing migratory bird species and/or populations with those countries outside the Arctic that are responsible for Arctic breeding birds during the non-breeding season.

The proceedings from the eighth CBird meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, U.S.A.

The overall goal of the workshop was to identify possible synergies between organisations and networks working with Arctic terrestrial biodiversity, and to agree on common actions to improve the collaboration and communication (see appendix 1 and 2 for further information about agenda and participants).

Proceedings of the first Terrestrial Expert Monitoring Group workshop to develop a multidisciplinary, integrated, pan-Arctic, long-term terrestrial biodiversity monitoring plan. 

Workshop goals were to: outline past trends and the current situation for sea ice-associated biodiversity and project what might happen in the future; consider issues facing sea ice-associated biodiversity and what actions might be required to adapt to or mitigate the effects of reduced availability of Arctic sea ice; outline a technical report on the effects of sea ice loss on ice-associated biodiversity and determine next steps.

The goal of the workshop was (i) for selected protected area experts and practitioners to discuss relevant arctic protected areas issues and opportunities for coordinated approaches to biodiversity monitoring, (2) to review the provide opportunity for all Arctic Council country and permanent participants to share key monitoring considerations for the group to address; (3)and provide direction and enhancements to the draft protected area discussion paper in preparation for the development of an arctic protected area monitoring framework.

Twenty-two scientists, managers and community experts from the five Arctic polar bear nations, met in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to help develop a pan-Arctic monitoring plan for polar bears as part of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) of the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF).

A meeting to discuss the implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Montioring Program (CBMP, intended to detect changes in the natural environment, provide an early warning system, contribute to development and evaluation of national monitoring plans; and provide for timely and cost-effective sharing of information to Arctic and non-Arctic users.

CAFF/AMAP Workshop on Climate Change: Rovaniemi, Finland: March 24-25, 1998 was held so that the two programs could jointly discuss the potential impacts of climate change on the Arctic and provide holistic recommendations to the Arctic Council.

CAFF/AMAP Workshop on a Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program: Reykjavik, Iceland: February 7-9, 2000 was held to advance work on biodiversity and climate change montioring in the circumpolar Arctic.
