INTERACT WP7 Improving and harmonizing biodiversity monitoring Rif workshop report

Interact WP7 reportcoverThe International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic (INTERACT)
is an EU funded initiative working towards building capacity to help identify, understand,
predict and respond to environmental changes across the Arctic.
INTERACT Work Package (WP) 7 Improving and harmonizing biodiversity monitoring is led
by the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Arctic Council Working Group. The
overall goal of WP7 is to test the circumpolar Freshwater and Terrestrial Arctic biodiversity
monitoring plans of CAFFs cornerstone program, the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring
Program (CBMP), at INTERACT stations.
The goal of the CBMP monitoring plans is to harmonize and integrate efforts to monitor the
Arctic's living resources through a network of scientists, governments, Indigenous
organizations, and conservation groups. Through this harmonization and integration, the
monitoring plans facilitate more rapid detection, communication, and response to the
significant pressures affecting the circumpolar world.

A 2015 update on the implementation of the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan in Canada.  

This report summarizes the initial set of satellite data products included in the CAFF Land Cover Change (LCC) Initiative. The LCC Initiative has been developed to harness the potential of remote sensing for use in Arctic biodiversity monitoring and assessment activities. 

This report describes the progress towards implementation of the CBMP-Terrestrial Plan in 2014 and a work plan for the coming year  

A progress report of the Land Cover Change Index, an initiative to create a framework to harness remote sensing potential for use in Arctic biodiversity monitoring and assessment activities. This document reports on progress made in Phase 1 of this initiative 2013-2015.

A progress report to the Arctic Council Ministerial meeting, Iqaluit, Canada, April 2015 on CAFF's traditional knowledge and community-based monitoring work.

This document details the background, purpose, development, structure and outcomes of the CBMP Terrestrial Steering Group meeting in Akureyri, Iceland February 2014 to implement the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan.

Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan: scientific poster

This scientific poster, intended for presentations at conferences and meetings, provides an overview of the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan, including key management questions, benefits, and approach.

The CBMP Terrestrial Expert Monitoring Group (CBMP-TEMG) has developed the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan (CBMP-Terrestrial Plan/the Plan) as the framework for coordinated, long-term Arctic terrestrial biodiversity monitoring. The goal of the CBMP-Terrestrial Plan is to improve the collective ability of Arctic traditional knowledge (TK) holders, northern communities, and scientists to detect, understand and report on long-term change in Arctic terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity.
