The Terrestrial Steering Group (TSG) of the CBMP is responsible for the implementation of the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan, one of the four pan-Arctic biodiversity monitoring plans being developed by the CBMP to improve the detection and understanding of the causes of long-term change in the composition, structure and function of Arctic ecosystems.

The TSG is composed of one representative and an alternate from each Arctic marine nation as well as representatives from interested Permanent Participants. Other members (e.g., Arctic Council Working Group representatives) are involved as relevant. Other groups involved in implementation include international, national, sub-national and local groups already conducting terrestrial monitoring.

The implementation of the CBMP-Terrestrial Plan will incorporate a "network of networks" approach described here and coordinated by the Terrestrial Steering Group
