|Title:||US Arctic Research Commission’s Working Groups|
|Date:||Tuesday, 12 September 2017|
A primary duty of the US Arctic Research Commission (USARC) is to interact with Arctic residents, international Arctic research programs and organizations, and local institutions including regional governments, in order to obtain the broadest possible view of Arctic research needs. To facilitate this, the USARC coordinates working groups to examine and develop research needs for specific topics—generally based on feedback from stakeholders. USARC’s Anchorage-based office currently coordinates three working groups: the Alaska Rural Water and Sanitation Working Group (ARWSWG), the Arctic Renewable Energy Working Group (AREWG) and the Arctic Mental Health Working Group (AMMHWG).
This webinar will present an overview of the mission and objectives of the three US Arctic Research Commission working groups, as well as ways to connect with their activities.
Available online or in-person in 407 IARC/Akasofu building on the UAF campus.
