The ARCSAR Innovation and Knowledge Exchange Event 2

24-25 February 2020, Intercontinental Hotel, Grey St, Wellington, New Zealand
27 February 2020, Marine Oil Pollution Service,755 Te Atatu Road, Te Atatu, Auckland, New Zealand

From Antarctic to Arctic: Seminar on Innovations and Solutions for Coordination and Emergency Response in Remote Areas

The second Innovation and Knowledge Exchange event is a combination of a seminar focusing on experiences and best practices to emergency response and coordination from New Zealand and the Antarctic region, and a visit to the Marine Oil Pollution Service in Auckland. The event is co-organized by Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ) and NORD University and is part of ARCSAR WP2.

New Zealand’s search and rescue region (SRR) and the Antarctic region are extremely vast and face similar challenges in emergency response and coordination as the Arctic region. The seminar will focus on giving the ARCSAR partners an overview of SAR and oil spill response systems in New Zealand, NZ approach to issues within Antarctica, as well as best practices on cooperation with Indigenous partners, research institutes, and other stakeholders. The idea is to draw innovative examples from New Zealand to bring home to the Arctic.
The first part of the event is a two-day seminar hosted by RCCNZ in Wellington. The second part of the event is a visit to the Marine Oil Pollution Service based in Auckland.
