Description: 

The NWT Water Stewardship Strategy Northern Voices, Northern Waters: the NWT Water Stewardship Strategy (NWT Water Stewardship Strategy) was released in May 2010.
The NWT Water Stewardship Strategy is a made in the north strategy intended to guide effective, long-term stewardship of NWT water resources. One of the “Keys to Success” in the NWT Water Stewardship Strategy is the establishment of “a pilot study for community source water protection planning that links aquatic ecosystem indicator development and community-based monitoring.” In response to this “Key to Success”, the Government
of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) initiated a document to assist communities in the preparation of source water protection planning. This 2012 Source Water Assessment and Protection (SWAP) program document is the outcome.

Description: 

The Alaska Climate-Biome Shift Project (AK Cliomes) and the Yukon (YT) and Northwest Territories (NWT) Climate-Biome Shift Project (Ca Cliomes) were collaborative efforts that used progressive clustering methodology, existing land cover classifications, and historical and projected climate data to identify areas of Alaska, the Yukon, and NWT that are likely to undergo the greatest or least ecological pressure, given climate change. Project results and data presented in this report are intended to serve as a framework for research and planning by land managers and other stakeholders with an interest in ecological and socioeconomic sus- tainability .

Description: 

The following is a summary of a completed study that mapped the predicted ecosystem changes that would occur in the NWT and Alaska (not shown) due to warming temperatures associated with climate change. Three scenarios, based on global greenhouse gas emissions, were studied; a low temperature increase, an average temperature increase, and a high temperature increase. The results were overlain on a map of the NWT, and these maps are presented in this summary. For more information on the study and its methodology, please refer to the full report completed by the Scenarios Network for Arctic Planning and the EWHALE lab, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
