Project 13.2
Operations Task Force – Year 6

North/West Passage has supported an Operations Task Force for five years. The intent of the task force is to establish relationships, enhance the scope of operations-oriented projects, support further implementation of project findings, and increase interaction among the states outside of major events.

This project is continuing to support the task force for another year (September 2018 - September 2019). Tasks include coordinating and facilitating operations-oriented topics for discussion during task force webinars as shown in the table below.
