Aim:
The aim of the workshop is to develop our understanding of the state of Indigenous involvement in, and Indigenous led, marine protection in the circumpolar Arctic Ocean. Workshop participants will also explore and develop their understanding of Indigenous, Traditional and Local Knowledge as a foundational element in MPA and MPA network design and management, and identify ways to support a spectrum of Indigenous involvement in marine protection, including a community of information exchange.

Outputs:
The outputs of the workshop are still under development; however, it is expected that workshop participants will work to identify potential next steps in advancing the understanding of Indigenous involvement in the identification, design, management and monitoring of marine conservation areas; and, to develop a new tool, such as best practices or lessons learned for Indigenous/Local involvement in marine protection in the circumpolar Arctic Ocean that could contribute to the expansion of PAME’s MPA Toolbox.
