The Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan is a framework that uses an ecosystem-based approach to integrate monitoring, assessment and reporting of focal species, ecological functions, ecosystems, interactions and potential drivers. It aims to scale-up existing local observations to improve regional, national and global understanding of Arctic biodiversity status and trends. Involving eight Arctic nations, these efforts will yield more powerful and cost-effective monitoring of Arctic terrestrial systems and provide more comprehensive and timely circumpolar information for effective decisionmaking
