SCPAR meeting in Reykjavik, October 12th
The Standing Committee held its third meeting this year, in Iceland. One of the most important part of the committee meetings is to share best practices, in areas where respective countries have made progress in Arctic related issues. In Iceland, the focus was on renewable energy. In the meeting, the committee agreed to implement the work of its communications-working group and create its own Twitter and Facebook accounts. The aim is to better convey the message of the parliamentarians and share the discussions and the work they do in the committee to improve the living standards of the people living in the Arctic. And as the climate change and its implications to the Arctic area are on the focus, the parliamentarians are engaging also on the way how different regions are adapting and what kind of solutions are used in the field of sustainable development and the actions against the climate change.
