Description: 

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) is leading the development of
the NWT Climate Change Strategic Framework and the Department of Infrastructure (INF) is
leading the development of the NWT Energy Strategy.
Given the key linkages between these two initiatives, ENR and INF worked together to gather
public input through a survey and six regional engagement workshops. This work was done
between August 2016 and March 2017. The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT)
also received written submissions from several organizations during this same period and
hosted a facilitated electricity sector stakeholder meeting to discuss current issues.
The survey and the six workshops focused on key energy and climate change-related themes.

Description: 

This paper looks at the Arctic's rapid and intense warming trend using Environment Canada weather stations data from four communities in the NWT. The airport weather stations in Inuvik, Norman Wells, Yellowknife and Fort Smith date back to the 1940s and are the longest standing and most consistent climate stations in the NWT. The report contains information from datasets between 1957 and 2012. These four communities sit on a rough north to south transect and are well spaced to provide a good overview of the trends in the Mackenzie River watershed.

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.

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 .
