Town Hall Title: Federal Interagency Coordination for Research in the Arctic

Location: Moscone West, Room:2004, L2 

Description: As an Arctic nation, the United States is directly affected by Arctic amplification of global warming and the resultant impacts on the Arctic environmental system. For effective decision- and policy-making, it is imperative that the ability to observe, understand and predict these systemic changes be enhanced. While many individual Federal Government agencies support research into particular aspects of the changes that are relevant to their particular mission, the government also works to coordinate Federal Arctic research in order to reduce duplication of effort and costs, and to achieve outcomes that are greater than the sum of the parts. The U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) accomplishes this coordination through its development of five-year Arctic research plans and their implementation via “IARPC Collaborations”. This Town Hall will highlight how agencies are able to advance their own missions while also supporting the broader collaborative research objectives of IARPC
