This is a workshop for those involved in community-based monitoring (CBM) who wish to build this community of practice and increase the effectiveness of CBM in decision making. The workshop will introduce participants to INTAROS and other relevant initiatives that are supporting development of CBM networks. Presentations and breakout groups will allow participants to exchange experiences and discuss the next generation of CBMs in the Arctic.
The workshop is being hosted by the INTAROS: Integrated Arctic Observing System with collaboration from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), the Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council (YRITWC) and the Exchange for Local Observations and Knowledge of the Arctic (ELOKA).
