As Committees of the Council of UArctic, the Nominations Committee’s main responsibility is to oversee UArctic’s key nominations processes; and the Indigenous Issues Committee’s mandate is to oversee and provide advice on all matters pertaining to indigenous issues that relate to the activities of UArctic.

Both committees made key decisions and contributed to proposals, which will go forward for review by the members of the Council of UArctic, during the upcoming Council Meeting 2017 in Nuuk, Greenland, August 15-17.
