The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) is coordinating a multi-year planning process for the Fourth International Conference for Arctic Research Planning (ICARP). This process will engage Arctic researchers, policy makers, residents, and stakeholders from around the world to discuss the state of Arctic science, the place the Arctic occupies in global affairs and systems, to consider the most urgent knowledge gaps and research priorities that lie before us, and to explore avenues to address these research needs.
The Third International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP III) was held in Toyama, Japan in 2015 and provided a framework to identify Arctic science priorities for the next decade; coordinate various Arctic research agendas; inform policy makers, people who live in or near the Arctic and the global community and build constructive relationships between producers and users of knowledge.
The Second International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP II) was held in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2005. It brought together scientists, policy makers, research managers, indigenous peoples, and others interested in and concerned about the future of Arctic research. ICARP II was structured around twelve major areas of potential research needs, each of which has been led by an international team of scientists and other experts.
