Basecamp for Working Groups and Intersessional Correspondence Groups (ICGs)
Many of OSPAR's subsidiary bodies have established Working Groups or Intersessional Correspondence Groups (ICGs) to undertake additional work vital to the implementation of their programmes of work, the Joint Assessment and Monitoring Programme (JAMP) and ultimately the North East Atlantic Environment Strategy.
In order to facilitate the work of Working Groups and ICGs OSPAR has established an online collaboration space, utilising Basecamp, to allow ICG members to communicate within the groups, allocate to-do items to group members, set deadlines and milestones for key work items and share files.
