Knowledge for a Sustainable Arctic was the overarching theme for ASM3 and included four sub-themes under the titles: Observe, Understand, Respond, Strengthen. The ASM3 organizers and Science Advisory Board conducted a robust and inclusive science process to provide a strong foundation for all the final outcomes of the ASM3. These outcomes create useful tools for cooperation, deepen our understanding of both the achievements and challenges that lie ahead, and provide a strong framework for taking urgent action.
