SAON Committee on Observations and Networks (SAON CON)
Side meeting at POLAR2018
Arctic Value Tree Analysis –Recent developments and implications for societal benefits
Date: Thursday, 21 June, 2018
Room: A Wisshorn
There is an increasing societal and political interest calling for efforts to observe the Arctic areas and monitor their environmental changes for mitigation and adaptation in the future. At the same time, the Arctic monitoring efforts and related research are still lacking long-term support to maintain sustained and harmonized observations. Furthermore, the connections between the Arctic earth observations and monitoring data and the different societal benefit objectives should be strengthened for efficient policy advice.
The side meeting is highlighting the SAON CON activities supporting improved information flow between the international and national Arctic monitoring efforts, and two current Arctic value tree projects, aiming to connect the Arctic observations with related key societal benefit objectives.
