During POLAR 2018 in Davos (Switzerland), IASC Working Groups convened for their annual meetings to assess activities held in 2017 and to plan upcoming activities for 2018/2019. “Upcoming activities” includes both Working-Group-specific and Cross-Cutting activities (that is to say when at least two Working Groups jointly support an activity). After consideration and discussion, proposals that receive approval from the Working Groups receive funding. The next annual meeting of the Working Groups will be during ASSW2019 in Arkhangelsk (Russia).

Below, you can read a brief overview of each Working Group’s upcoming activities and new members.
