Arctic biodiversity principles and their application in mainstreaming biodiversity. Phase 1: Background and options paper

A draft set of Arctic biodiversity principles was developed, based on the findings and recommendations of the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment (ABA). Basing the principles on the ABA ensures they are well-grounded in science, in line with Arctic Council priorities and will provide a robust framework for mainstreaming applications. We sought advice from ten people with experience in biodiversity mainstreaming and conducted a literature and website review. Results from the interviews and review are summarized and discussed.
