The CAPARDUS H2020 project has focus on standards, guidelines and practices in research, environmental protection, economic activities as well as in regulations and governance of the Arctic. The dramatic change in the climate and environment combined with growing human activities requires standards and regulations. People living and working in the Arctic are expected to operate according to ethics, norms, guidelines or common practices, which often evolve as a bottom-up process. In other cases jurisdiction or regulations provide a top-down framework for guidelines and practices. CAPARDUS contributes to the Arctic Practices Community by documents on standards, guidelines and practices of relevance for scientists, commercial operators, Indigenous and local communities, NGOs and governance bodies. The Arctic Practices Community is an initial repository for supporting CAPARDUS Arctic Practices System Design.
