"In response to the global importance of the Arctic’s biodiversity, the increasing pressures on Arctic biodiversity and human communities, and our limited capacity to monitor and understand these changes, the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) recommended that long-term Arctic biodiversity monitoring be expanded and enhanced. In its acceptance of the findings and projections from the ACIA, the Arctic Council directed the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna Working Group (CAFF) to examine the ACIA findings related to biodiversity conservation and develop follow-up programmes and activities to address key projections for the future of the Arctic. A primary response has been the implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP). The CBMP is a mechanism for harmonizing and enhancing long-term biodiversity monitoring efforts across the Arctic in order to improve our ability to detect and report on significant trends and pressures. The resulting information will be used to assist policy and decision making at the global, national, regional and local levels." /.../
