The Plan aims to strengthen interagency communication, coordination, and collaboration of the 14 Federal agencies, departments and offices that make up IARPC. The Plan will address critical needs in Arctic research and identify those areas where research in the Arctic can be improved through interagency collaboration. More information is available at https:// www.iarpccollaborations.org/arcticresearch-plan-2022-2026.html. About IARPC IARPC is chartered as a subcommittee under the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) managed by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) in the Executive Office of the President. The Arctic Research Policy Act of 1984 (ARPA) provides for a comprehensive national policy dealing with national research needs and objectives in the Arctic. The ARPA established an Arctic Research Commission (ARC) and an Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC), to implement the Act. IARPC was formally created by Executive Order 12501 and with the Director of the National Science Foundation serving as Chair. IARPC is charged with enhancing both the scientific monitoring of and research on local, regional, and global environmental issues in the Arctic. To meet the Nation’s economic, scientific, and environmental needs, IARPC envisions a prosperous, sustainable and healthy Arctic realized through research coordinated among Federal agencies and domestic and international collaborators. About the Arctic Research Plan IARPC is required by law to prepare and execute a 5-year Arctic Research Plan, which helps to coordinate the overall Federal effort in Arctic research. To address the interests and needs of all, IARPC works in partnership with representatives from local communities, Indigenous Peoples, the State of Alaska, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, research institutions, and the academic community. To date, two research Plans have been released and implemented. The current Plan, ‘‘Arctic Research Plan 2017–2021,’’ has four policy drivers and nine research goals (see below). The current Plan is being implemented by nine collaboration teams which are co-led by program managers and researchers from IARPC agencies and individuals from the research community and Alaska Native partners. PO 00000 Frm 00119 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19031 In September 2019, the IARPC Principals approved the development of the next Arctic Research Plan, covering the period of 2022–2026, with a planned release date at the end of calendar year 2021. Plans reflect the goals and missions of the Federal agencies supporting research in the Arctic and are developed in coordination with the goals and objectives set out by the Arctic Research Commission. Arctic Research Plans focus on research which will be enhanced through collaboration among Federal agencies. The new Arctic Research Plan will provide a blueprint for effective Federal coordination of Arctic research for the period 2022– 2026, positioning the United States to remain a global leader in Arctic research and stewardship for many years to come. Seeking Input As called for in the ARPA, IARPC seeks input to ensure that the research interests and needs of all are addressed appropriately in the new Plan. Input is sought from any interested individuals and organizations, and IARPC is committed to an open and equitable engagement process throughout the development of the Plan. A second Federal Register Notice, seeking input from interested individuals and organizations, will be posted when a draft of the new Arctic Research Plan is ready in 2021. IARPC is soliciting input on: 1. Content of the Plan: The critical issues where Federally-funded science and engineering research can provide knowledge to promote good decisionmaking at all levels related to the Arctic. 2. Organization of the Plan: The structure of the Arctic Research Plan and how it might be updated to better meet and communicate the science needs and plans for the Arctic. The current Plan ‘‘Arctic Research Plan 2017–2021’’ has four policy drivers and nine research goals. The policy drivers for the Arctic Research Plan FY2017–2021 are: • Enhance the well-being of Arctic residents; • Advance stewardship of the Arctic environment; • Strengthen national and regional security; and • Improve understanding of the Arctic as a component of planet Earth. The 9 goals of the Arctic Research Plan FY2017–2021 are: • Enhance understanding of health determinants and improve the wellbeing of Arctic residents; • Advance process and system understanding of the changing Arctic E:\FR\FM\03APN1.SGM 03APN1
