Polar and Cryosphere Programme

GRID-Arendal is mandated, used and valued by UNEP and other UN organizations as their key actor for networking and provider of analyses, environmental and climate information and knowledge as well as the promoter of environmental solutions in the Polar and Cryosphere regions, particularly in the Arctic.

UNEP in the Arctic GRID-Arendal (representing UNEP as an observer in Arctic Council) has continued to participate as a part- ner in developing the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitor- ing Programme and the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment, both programmes run by Arctic Council’s working group Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF). The Polar team was also actively engaged in the International Po- lar Year and has launched a web site in conjunction with UNEP to help promote IPY Polar Books.
