Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF)
"Key CAFF Activities Since Last SAO Meeting The CAFF has developed the Framework Document for the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program. This report will be a key CAFF deliverable at the Ministerial meeting. The CAFF has been extensively involved in completing the ACIA Scientific Report and Overview Document. The CAFF has been participating in the development of the PAME-led AC Arctic Marine Strategic Plan, and attended the recent AMSP Workshop in Helsinki. CAFF, through its Norwegian representative and Grid-Arendal, has been involved in ongoing efforts in the implementation of the ECORA Project. We expect the ECORA Project to begin implementation this summer. CAFF and AMAP conducted a joint meeting in April concerning the ACIA Project documents, AMAP Hydrocarbon Assessment, and a coordinated CAFF/AMAP monitoring program." /.../
