The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Collaborations invites attendance for a webinar listening session on the draft version of the Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic. This webinar will be held via Zoom Video Conferencing.
Attend this webinar to learn more about and submit comments on the newly revised Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic 2018. Researchers working in the Arctic have a responsibility to respect local culture and knowledge and advance stewardship of the Arctic environment. The original Principles, released in 1990, have been revised to provide guidelines for the conduct of research, to better align with U.S. Arctic policy, to incorporate the latest advances in research methods, and to reflect expanded research efforts and disciplinary breadth in a rapidly changing Arctic. The U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Principles Revision Working Group prepared these draft Principles after seeking and receiving diverse input from federal, state, and local agency representatives; Alaska native people and organizations; academic organizations; and individual researchers. Working group representatives will be present at this webinar to inform the community about the principles and receive comment.
