Arctic wildland Fire Sharing Circle March2022 1In November 2021, the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) and Emergency Prevention, Preparedness and Response (EPPR) Working Groups, in collaboration with Gwich’in Council International (GCI) organized the Arctic Wildland Fire Sharing Circle. Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event was held online over two-days, 17-18 November 2021, with invited talks from across the Arctic and breakout sessions for discussion. Miami University hosted and facilitated the Sharing Circle, specifically Professor Jessica McCarty, a member of the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme’s (AMAP) Expert Group on Short-Lived Climate Forcers (EG SLCF). The event brought together multiple Working Groups, diverse participants, and a range of projects active and planned for the Arctic in an innovative way to learn, share, and discuss. It fostered a spirit of inclusiveness, and was unique in looking across borders and Working Groups to bring a truly circumpolar lens to wildland fire in the Arctic. This report summarizes the event.
