Abstract
"Scientists and public organizations have recognized the need for comprehensive and methodical monitoring of the environmental, social, and economic changes and trends in the Arctic and acknowledged an indispensable role of the indigenous peoples in systematic collection and analysis of data. The call for joint international monitoring efforts involving scientists, indigenous communities and general public resonates in major international research projects, such as the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, UNFCCC, IPCC and others. International Polar Year could become a catalyst of multilateral, socially and scientifically diverse collaboration on a creation of an integrated, all-inclusive monitoring system." /.../
