Following the mandate given to AMAP in the Salekhard declaration of the Arctic Council 2006, the SAON Initiating Group was formed in 2007 by representatives of the organisations listed below to facilitate a process towards Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks. The agreed process is to organise a series of workshops in collaboration with national hosts and in close dialogue with the Arctic observing and monitoring communities. Please find below a pdf describing the SAON aims, present status and a suggested process to achieve the aims.
