IASC Action Groups

Actions Groups are established by the IASC Council to provide strategic advice concerning both long-term activities and urgent needs. They are expert groups typically with a one or two year mandate and conclude their task with a report to the Council.

The group was jointly established with the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) with the initial mandate to explore options for effective cooperation concerning bipolar issues and the development of mechanisms to nurture the International Polar Year legacy. The two-year mandate for BipAG was prolonged in 2010 and BipAG II concentrated first and foremost on bipolar scientific opportunities of cooperation.
