It is the intention of IASC that the focus of ICARP IV be on important research questions that cut across many disciplines and knowledge systems. IASC is committed to recognizing that Traditional Knowledge, Indigenous Knowledge and academic scientific knowledge are coequal and complementary knowledge systems that all can and should inform the work of IASC and ICARP IV. Research efforts should provide improved understanding and predictive capabilities for the evolution of Arctic systems. Consideration will be given to providing relevant and useful information that peoples in the Arctic and those in more temperate regions need to have in order to adapt and prepare for the changing Arctic and its impact on global systems.
