Roundtable Discussion on the Arctic Council Agreement on Enhancing International Science Cooperation

 

At its ministerial meeting in Fairbanks in May 2017, the Arctic Council adopted the Agreement on Enhancing International Scientific Cooperation, aiming to “increase effectiveness and efficiency in the development of scientific knowledge about the Arctic.”

Having adopted the agreement, the key question now is its implementation. How are the Arctic governments going to move the agreement from paper to practice?

In this roundtable discussion, representatives from Arctic Council members and observers, as well as from the research community, will discuss the agreement, how it will be implemented in practice, and what the likely gains are for science.

Moderator: Anniken Krutnes, Senior Arctic Official, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
