Wetlands phase 2The second and current stage of the project examined regulatory efforts and management approaches aimed at maintaining important wetlands functions through the use of illustrative case studies.

The insights gained through these case studies will deliver significantly deeper insights and actionable recommendations for policy and management that will be developed in the third phase of the project. The second phase will continue to compile wetland inventories and explore the knowledge of livelihoods uses of wetlands by Arctic Indigenous peoples in collaboration with the Sámi Council and other Permanent Participant organizations of the Arctic Council. 

Phase 2 looked at 1) assembling wetland inventories across the Arctic and identifying ways of making them comparable; 2) Representative case studies to identify effective regulatory and management tools for restoring and protecting wetlands and effectively balancing conservation and use; and 3) a workshop to engage with relevant experts and to evaluate the compiled case studies and inventories, and to discuss further policy engagement.
