Outreach activities

In the past, the ICP Vegetation has focused its activites in Europe with collaborations in Northern America. More recently, the ICP Vegetation has extended its collaboration and activities into the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) region and Asia. Hence, in 2014, the coordination of the moss survey was handed over to the Russian Federation and in 2017, the ICP Vegetation-Asia network was established. This has increased participation in ICP Vegetation in those regions. The ICP Vegetation is keen to stimulate participation in global intiatives and activities under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), for example, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC), United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and initiatives such as the Tropospheric Ozone Assessment Report (TOAR).
