WP004: Future Antarctic Science Challenges

Submitted: 06/04/2017

Summary:

The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) is an interdisciplinary body of the International Council for Science charged with the initiation and international coordination of Antarctic and Southern Ocean research beneficial to global society. SCAR’s Strategic Plan 2017-2022 continues to identify the delivery of independent scientific advice to the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meetings as one of its key objectives. During discussions of Future Antarctic Science Challenges and how these might be prioritised, SCAR, as the leading organization that promotes, facilitates, and delivers research and evidence-based policy advice on globally significant issues in, from and about Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, stands ready to assist the ATCM.
