The 4th International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP IV) Process is a decadal Arctic research planning process organised from 2022 until 2026 by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) in cooperation with many partners worldwide for the fourth time since 1995. ICARP IV is a community-wide undertaking engaging Arctic researchers, Indigenous Peoples, policy makers, residents and stakeholders from around the world to discuss the state of Arctic science and the place the Arctic occupies in global affairs and Earth systems. The process considers the most urgent knowledge gaps and research priorities for the next decade (until 2035), and explores avenues to address and implement these research needs. More information can be found on the ICARP IV website.

Other ways to engage in the ICARP IV process:

Throughout 2023 and 2024, community engagement within the ICARP IV process is encouraged with the goal of the process being truly inclusive, diverse, and engaging to ensure that the research priorities for the next decade are firmly grounded on the advice and needs of Arctic scientists and science organisations, Indigenous peoples and Arctic residents, stakeholders, and rights-holders. Individuals of all career stages, groups, networks, institutions, and organisations are encouraged to contribute to this ICARP IV engagement process and you can find more information on the ICARP IV website.
