The Second International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP II) was held in Copenhagen, Denmark, 10-12 November 2005. It brought together scientists, policy makers, research managers, indigenous peoples, and others interested in and concerned about the future of Arctic research.
ICARP II was structured around twelve major areas of potential research needs, each of which has been led by an international team of scientists and other experts (e.g., elders and other leaders in the Indigenous communities of the North).
This process led to the analyses and recommendations, the results of which are documented in eleven Science Plans and a Background Paper on Contaminants.
