The International Cooperative Engagement Program for Polar Research (ICE-PPR) is an agreement between the U.S., Canada, Finland, New Zealand, Denmark, Norway and Sweden and a direct response to the rise of power in northern regions. “ICE-PPR enables the full spectrum of research, development, testing, evaluation, experimentation, acquisition, fielding, and personnel exchange.” The United States can learn from the polar regions and lay the groundwork to address long standing capability gaps in critical areas. While China is engaging more in polar areas with activities such as illegal fishing, the ICE-PRR is designed to keep up to their pace. The multinational agreement provides strategic cooperation across the globe to accelerate the abilities of likeminded nations in order to preserve safe, secure, and stable polar regions.
