The BRSEA will form part of the science-based review included in the December 20, 2016 United States-Canada Joint Arctic Leaders’ Statement. The BRSEA will:
a. Recommend desired economic and environmental outcomes and thresholds for oil and gas development in the Beaufort region while respecting the Inuvialuit Final Agreement and relevant regulatory processes.
b. Advance baseline information and the state of knowledge for the Beaufort Sea while reflecting the dynamic nature of the environment.
c. Support informed decision-making around possible future resource development and management, environmental conservation programs, community sustainable and subsistence activities, and other complementary commercial activities.
The BRSEA will promote engagement, education, monitoring, and research projects in the Western Arctic (the Canadian Beaufort Sea and Inuvialuit Settlement Region) Local and traditional knowledge and community input will be essential to developing recommendations which will inform these decisions.
