IPY Legacies - Initial Ideas and Options.
"This document from the IPY International Programme Office (IPO) responds to the January 2008 proposal by Norway entitled ʻMaximizing the IPY Legacyʼ. While responding positively to the content and intent of the Norway proposal, this document expands the definitions of the IPY legacy to include a broad array of facets and issues. In view of the long list of IPY legacy aspects, a proposal such as Norway makes for a scoping study and and stakeholder workshop seems necessary and timely. For each of these legacy aspects, a scoping study should assess prospects for success, potential partners, degree of Arctic Council involvement, and urgency. The IPO and obvious partners including IASC, SCAR, the University of the Arctic, and the Arctic Portal look forward to contributing to and participating in these legacy discussions." /.../
