Standing Committee on the Antarctic Treaty System (SCATS), 2018-19 Report

Agenda Item: 10
Person Responsible: Aleks Terauds

Report Author: Aleks Terauds (Australia)


Summary

Since the last Delegates Meeting, the SCAR Standing Committee on the Antarctic Treaty System (SC-ATS) continued to focus on the provision of advice to the Antarctic Treaty System and engaged in a range of international activities that enhanced SCAR’s reputation as a provider of independent and scientific advice and as a leader in Antarctic science. These activities have included: active participation in the 2018 CCAMLR Meetings; a workshop on Antarctic Tourism in 2019; the 2019 CEP/ATCM meetings; the development and support of one major international workshop; maintaining an active and influential role in the Antarctic Environments Portal; and direct involvement in a diverse range of research projects.

SC-ATS continues to energetically pursue the development of new policy-relevant advice through active engagement with international scientists and policy makers. To help achieve this, SC-ATS is continually working on developing ideas to underpin future international initiatives.
