Thank you for your interest in the future of climate change mitigation and adaptation in the NWT. We look forward to hearing from you!

What is this engagement about?

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) has released a Draft Climate Change Strategic Framework for public comment. Le document contient la traduction française du sommaire.

The draft Framework lays out the GNWT’s comprehensive and coordinated response to climate change. It outlines the GNWT’s long-term approach to developing a strong, healthy economy that is less dependent on fossil fuels; increasing our understanding of the impacts of climate change; and improving our ability to build resilience and adapt to a changing climate.

How will we get there?

The GNWT prepared a draft Framework based on input from public engagement received during 2016/17 regional meetings, an online survey and several written submissions.

The draft Framework has now been released for public review and the public is invited to comment until January 19, 2018. See below for more information on how you can provide feedback.

After the current round of engagement is completed, the draft Framework will then be tabled in the Legislative Assembly in the spring of 2018. An Action Plan to implement the Framework will be developed during 2018.

How can my contribution make a difference?

The Framework will be finalized based on comments received during this round of engagement with Indigenous governments, stakeholders and the public.

Where can I find out more?

Results of past public engagement
