Third International Science and Policy Conference on Implementation of the Ecosystem Approach to Management in the Arctic

Tromsø, Norway
Spring 2024 (dates to be confirmed)

​​​​​​​​​​​​The Ecosystem Approach to Management (EA) is a widely adopted management principle that requires integrated management across sectors of human activities to achieve sustainable use of natural resources while maintaining the integrity of the ecosystem. The EA approach has been acknowledged, defined and adopted by the Arctic states working under the Arctic Council.​ In 2013 (Kiruna Declaration), the Arctic Council agreed that there was a need for periodic reviews of EA implementation in the Arctic to exchange information on integrated assessment and management experiences. 

This conference will bring together experts and practitioners to examine the scientific, policy and indigenous understanding and experience of the ecosystem approach to management in the eighteen Large Marine Ecosystems of the Arctic and corresponding terrestrial areas.

The conference has three specific objectives:
  • Benchmark the status of implementation of EA in the Arctic
  • Present innovative examples of best practices in EA implementation
  • Identify priorities for future collaboration on EA implementation in the Arctic themes
​Topics to be addressed include Integrated Ecosystem Assessments, objectives, advice as well as national policies. 

Proceedings from the conference will be presented to the Arctic Council Ministerial meeting.​​
