The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is developing the next five-year Arctic Research Plan. The new plan will span from 2022 to 2026 and aims to improve the collective impacts of federal agencies in Arctic research. Federal agencies have drafted a plan taking into consideration input from Arctic communities, federal agencies with a presence in Alaska, federal agencies with Arctic investments, the state of Alaska, and other non-federal partners. IARPC is now asking for the public to comment on this draft.
The comment period is open through June 11, 2021. Visit iarpccollaborations.org/draft-plan.html to learn more about the plan and how to comment.
