Activity Description:

The IASC State of Arctic Science Report 2023 presents a cohesive synthesis of Arctic research activities and priorities with a large range of input and contributions touching upon all aspects of Arctic research. It is aimed at Arctic science agencies, managers, and users, including a wide range of decision-makers and policy-makers, to help all Arctic science stakeholders and rightsholders stay up to date on Arctic research.

Published annually since 2020 by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the report is updated by the members of several IASC or IASC-affiliated committees including the

  • five IASC Working Groups (Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social and Human, Terrestrial);
  • International Science Initiative in the Russian Arctic (ISIRA);
  • Arctic Data Committee (ADC); and
  • Sustaining Arctic Observing Network (SAON).

The IASC State of Arctic Science Report series contributes an important resource to the Fourth International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP IV) process for the period of 2022 – 2026. Therefore, a wider range of contributors from the ICARP IV International Steering Committee also update the report during the ICARP IV Engagement Phase in 2023 and 2024.

The content of the report is compiled by the researchers themselves and thus is not exhaustive. There are many other NGOs, IGOs, institutions, non-profits, Indigenous Peoples’ organisations, private and public companies, and others around the world working in the Arctic knowledge space that are currently not participating in the preparation of this report.
