The ICARP IV process is a community-wide undertaking engaging Arctic researchers, Indigenous Peoples, policy makers, residents and other stakeholders from around the world.
One of the main goals for the ICARP IV engagement process is to be truly inclusive, diverse, and engaging to ensure that the scientific priorities for the next decade are firmly grounded on the advice and needs of Arctic scientists and science organisations, Indigenous people and Arctic residents, stakeholders, and rights-holders.
We are seeking community input throughout 2023 through a diverse set of engagement activities worldwide focused on:
- What are the most urgent knowledge gaps, research priorities and needs for the Arctic for the next decade?
- How do we address and implement these research priorities and needs over the next decade?
Individuals of all career stages, groups, networks, institutions and organisations are encouraged to contribute to the ICARP IV engagement process by:
- Participating in one of the ICARP IV engagement events throughout the year
- Seeking endorsement for organising their own activity (in-person and online) (e.g. workshops, sessions at conferences, sharing circles, webinars etc.)
- Submitting ICARP IV relevant outcomes from your own research projects (available soon!)
- Submitting documents that are relevant for the ICARP IV process (available soon!)
- Submitting statements via the Call for Statements (later in 2023!)
- Participating in the ICARP IV Survey (later in 2023!)
All input provided throughout the ICARP IV engagement process will be collected by the IASC Secretariat and will inform the work of the Research Priority Teams and International Steering Committee. This will to ensure your input is included in the development of the ICARP IV research priorities and implementation plans.
