Arctic Protected and Important Areas

An update to the 2017 Arctic Protected Areas Indicator Report (APAI).

Objective

CAFF and PAME will work jointly to update the 2017 Arctic Protected Areas Indicator Report (APAI) to incorporate protected areas established since 2017.

The APAI data will be compared to the data for the Arctic in the ProtectedPlanet database, managed by the United Nations Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre. The purpose of this comparison is to determine differences between the two databases and update each database accordingly.
