Join IARPC's new Coastal Resilience Collaboration Team!

With Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021, IARPC has launched a new team. The Coastal Resilience Collaboration Team is focused on strengthening coastal community resilience and advancing stewardship of coastal natural and cultural resources by engaging in research related to the interconnections of people, natural, and built environments.

The coasts are an area of convergence- so is the Coastal Resilience collaboration team.  Check out this video to see the topics we're working on.

Food Security

Food security is a major cross-cutting research theme throughout IARPC’s Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021. We are excited to have Carolina Behe as a leader of our Coastal Resilience Collaboration Team, where she will contribute expertise in food security from her work at the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC). The ICC offers many resources on food security, including an excellent presentation by Carolina herself called "Arctic Food Security: How to Assess Food Security from an Inuit Perspective"

Principles for the Conduct of Research in the Arctic

In 1990, IARPC developed the Principles for the Conduct of Research in the Arctic. IARPC is considering refreshing them, and we welcome thoughts on how they could be improved.

Would you like to learn more or contribute to our work? Please request an account on the IARPC Collaborations member space and join the Coastal Resilience Collaboration Team. On our member space, over 1000+ Arctic researchers and stakeholders, including U.S. Federal government program managers and scientists from State, academic, NGO, and industry, indigenous, and international organizations team up to solve hard problems to carry out the research laid out in our Arctic Research Plan published by the Executive Office of the President. We welcome anyone who can contribute.
