SCAR XXXII IP10: Other SCAR Partnerships
Authors: M Sparrow
Introduction/ Background: In pursuit of its Vision and Mission, SCAR often forms partnerships as an efficient means to achieve its goals and objectives. SCAR’s partners include other ICSU bodies, entities of the Antarctic Treaty System, organizations with a polar focus, and organizations with a polar interest. The types of partnerships SCAR form vary considerably since each is tailored to best accomplish the shared objectives. In some instances, formal co-sponsorship of an activity is warranted entailing shared responsibility for programme management and resourcing. SCAR is always open to, and looking for ways, to strengthen existing partnerships and establish new ones.
This paper summarises recent developments with regards to SCAR partnerships. The Delegates are asked to comment as appropriate.
Partners: IASC, IACS, COMNAP, CCAMLR, ICSU, SCOR, WCRP etc.
Budget Implications: Co-sponsorship does involve some budgetary commitments. This is $3000 for CliC (as previous) and $4000 for other co-sponsorships such as CLIVAR/CliC/SCAR Southern Ocean Implementation Panel, IPICS and ICED.
