Capacity-building in Arctic standardisation develoment

Project description

Best practices for environmental monitoring in the Arctic

The ongoing climate change in the Arctic causes a reduction of the sea ice cover, which improves access to the region and its resources. As a result new opportunities for development emerge, regarding exploration of natural resources, tourism, transport, and other industries. The EU-funded project CAPARDUS is a coordination and support action aimed at capacity-building to support sustainable development in the Arctic. The project will develop a 'Comprehensive Framework Model' for Arctic standards with a focus on environmental monitoring. This is a collaborative effort between scientists, local communities and other stakeholder groups, including economic actors who are interested in business development in the Arctic. The project will design an Arctic Best Practice System for development of standards across scientific disciplines and stakeholder groups.
