Consultative Forum

Role of the Consultative Forum

Given the large numbers of IPY 2007-2008 stakeholders, an advisory Consultative Forum (CF) has been established to provide a consultative platform for Polar Year development, including dialogue among the various stakeholders, expressions of views on IPY 2007-2008 and a venue for exchange of information with the Joint Committee on IPY 2007-2008 development.

The opinions and views expressed by stakeholders at this forum will be considered by the Joint Committee in all aspects of planning, implementation and management of the IPY 2007-2008. The Consultative Forum will assemble at least once per year and will be coordinated by the JC and the IPO. The funding for these meetings will be provided by the participants.

The first meeting of the Forum was in the UNESCO Building, Paris on March 10-11, 2005.
