CAFF International Secretariat: The International Secretariat, located in Akureyri, Iceland, was established by the Arctic Council as a body through which the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) program is coordinated and administered. The Secretariat is staffed by an Executive Secretary and one assistant. Through its annual work plans and strategic plans, the Secretariat provides an administrative and advisory function to the Arctic nations, and has overall responsibility to ensure that the Work Plan implementation is well-coordinated and timely and that there is adequate and ongoing liaison with other organizations important to the CAFF program, especially the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program, the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment, and the Joint CAFF-AMAP Monitoring Program. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the lead agency of the United States Government for implementation and support of the CAFF program. Under this responsibility, the Service has worked to foster international cooperation amount the eight Arctic countries: Canada, Finland, Greenland/Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and the United States. The Service has actively provided leadership and conservation expertise on issues such as habitat protection, flora and fauna conservation, modern human impact, and integration of traditional ecological knowledge from the inception of CAFF in 1991. The purpose of the Cooperative Agreement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the CAFF International Secretariat is to establish ongoing U.S. voluntary participation in the financial support for the CAFF Secretariat to ensure continuity and coordination of activities of the CAFF working group members from the eight Arctic nations. The main goals of CAFF are to conserve Arctic flora and fauna including endangered and threatened species, their diversity and their habitats; to protect the Arctic ecosystem from threats; to improve conservation management, laws, regulations, and practices for the Arctic; and to integrate Arctic interests into global conservation fora.

It is the only entity of its kind established for this specific purpose.
