The meeting will bring together local, regional and national decision-makers and experts, as well as Arctic PASSION researchers.
The purpose of the workshop is to identify key interactions/issues between pan-Arctic observation system (especially, the Arctic PASSION work) and the needs and activities of sub-national authorities and agencies. These issues will become topics for analysis and consecutive policy briefs, which we will elaborate under the Arctic Passion. We are interested both in learning about decision-makers' needs and possible benefits from improved pan-Arctic observation, as well as in the ways how local and regional decision-makers can contribute to integrated circumpolar observation and monitoring.
Arctic PASSION (Pan-Arctic Observing System of Systems: Implementing Observations for Societal Needs) is a Horizon 2020 project funded by the EU. The project addresses the need for a sustained and accessible observing system that is tuned to the diverse needs of users, ranging from local inhabitants to academia through to industry and decision-makers. Arctic PASSION contributes to co-creating an integrated pan-AOSS (pan-Arctic Observation System of Systems), which will allow for the monitoring of ongoing environmental changes, reduce uncertainly in predicting future system changes, support risk assessment, and inform and guide mitigation and adaptation measures, and to support sustainable development in the Arctic and elsewhere.
