Launch Of Antarctic Environments Portal Website - www.environments.aq
We are excited to have launched a ‘new look’ Antarctic Environments Portal Website: www.environments.aq.
The Antarctic Environments Portal provides ready access to high-level summary information on Antarctic issues, based on the best available scientific knowledge. In January 2020, The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) took over operation of the Antarctic Environments Portal. SCAR’s primary aim in hosting the Portal is to fulfil its remit of providing objective and independent scientific advice to the Antarctic Treaty System on issues of science and conservation affecting the management of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. SCAR will continue to build on earlier work to develop the Portal as the ‘go-to’ place for policy-relevant advice on Antarctic issues.
The new website has been redesigned to make it easier for users to find the information they want and to access additional resources. The Portal’s Information Summaries have also been designed to make them more user-friendly. We are piloting new infographics to help convey the key messages of the Portal Information Summaries.
