ItemArctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan Implementation: Canada, 2015(2015) CAFFA 2015 update on the implementation of the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan in Canada. ItemThe Development of A Pan-Arctic Monitoring Plan for Polar Bears: Edmonton, Canada: February 19-21, 2011(2011) CAFFTwenty-two scientists, managers and community experts from the five Arctic polar bear nations, met in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to help develop a pan-Arctic monitoring plan for polar bears as part of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) of the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF). Invitations were extended to individuals who participated on the basis of their expertise on polar bears or their role in monitoring. The workshop was funded by the US Marine Mammal Commission. ItemUnderstanding Biodiversity Changes and Causes, Synergies in Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Research and Monitoring: Joint Workshop TEMG, INTERACT, IASC: Hvalso, Denmark: October 12, 2011(2011) CAFF; INTERACT; IASCThere is some coordination between some biodiversity related projects and programmes in the Arctic, but there is still overlap between different initiatives and possibilities for improved coordination and sharing of knowledge and experiences. There is therefore a need to combine resources and jointly work together to improve our understanding of Arctic terrestrial biodiversity and ecosystem processes, status and trends and to disseminate the relevant information in both the public and policy arena. –– A workshop on “Understanding Biodiversity Changes and Causes – Synergies in Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Research and Monitoring” was held 12 October 2011 at Sonnerupgaard Gods in Denmark. This workshop was organized jointly by INTERACT, The Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme’s Terrestrial Expert Monitoring Group (CBMP TEMG) and the International Arctic Science Committee’s Terrestrial Working Group (ISAC TWG). ItemState of the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity: Key Findings and Advice for Monitoring(Arctic Council Secretariat, 2021) CAFFThe State of the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Report (START) is a product of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) Terrestrial Group of the Arctic Council’s Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Working Group. The overall goal of the START is to assess the status and trends of terrestrial Focal Ecosystem Components (FECs)—including species of vegetation, arthropods, birds and mammals—across the Arctic, and identify gaps in monitoring coverage towards implementation of the CBMP’s Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan (CBMP Terrestrial Plan). This report is a summary of key findings and advice for monitoring based on the START.
