ItemCircumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) Coastal Expert Workshop Meeting Report, Ottawa, Canada, February 29-March 3, 2016(2016) CAFFThe full proceedings report of the Coastal Expert Monitoring Group's expert workshop in Ottawa, Canada, Feb. 29- March 3, 2016. ItemCircumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme Coastal Expert Workshop Meeting Summary: Ottawa, Canada: February 29-March 3, 2016(2016) CAFFThe Coastal Expert Workshop brought together a diverse group of coastal experts with the common goal of developing a biodiversity monitoring program for coastal ecosystems across the circumpolar Arctic. Meeting participants, including northern residents, industry and Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) representatives, scientists, and government regulators from across the circumpolar Arctic, gathered at the Lord Elgin Hotel in Ottawa from March 1 to 3, 2016, to discuss current biodiversity monitoring efforts, understand key issues facing biodiversity in the Arctic coastal areas and suggest monitoring indicators, or Focal Ecosystem Components, for the program. A Traditional Knowledge Holders meeting was held on February 29, 2016 in conjunction with the workshop. The following document provides a summary of the workshop activities and outcomes, and will be followed by a more complete Workshop Report. ItemCircumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme Coastal Biodiversity Monitoring Background Paper(2016) CAFFThis background paper outlines how the Coastal Plan will be created and develops a framework for integrated and cost-effective monitoring of Arctic coastal biodiversity. The short term objective of the CBMP is to use existing monitoring programs to develop a multi-disciplinary, multi-knowledge base, integrated, circumpolar, long-term Coastal Plan that: -identifies and ensures better coordination of existing monitoring information and networks; -identifies and promotes the monitoring of a suite of focal ecosystem components and prioritised parameters for each focal ecosystem component; -ensures more efficient and effective synthesis and delivery of results of monitoring related to the informational needs, management objectives and questions of decision makers, Indigenous organisations, governments, local communities, scientific community, industry and other stakeholders; and -is based on science, Traditional Knowledge and community based monitoring, including input from industry as well as other relevant networks ItemArctic Coastal Biodiversity Monitoring Plan | Executive Summary(2019) CAFFCAFF Monitoring Series Report nr. 31. August 2019 The Arctic Coastal Biodiversity Monitoring Plan approved by the Foreign Ministers of the Arctic Council in May 2019 is an agreement across Arctic States to compile, harmonise and assess results from existing coastal biodiversity and ecosystem monitoring efforts, and to design a long term plan to comprehensively monitor and report change in Arctic coastal ecosystems.
