The Northwest Territories Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program (NWT CIMP) is a source of environmental monitoring and research in the Northwest Territories (NWT). The program coordinates, conducts and funds the collection, analysis and reporting of information related to environmental conditions in the NWT. Its main purpose is to support better resource management decision-making and the wise use of our resources by furthering our understanding of cumulative impacts and environmental trends.
For more information, see About us.
The NWT Environmental Audit is an important tool the GNWT and its partners can use to improve coordination and effectiveness in resource management systems, while incorporating Traditional Knowledge and honouring obligations under land claim agreements and devolution.
NWT CIMP has recently published short, high-level summaries of results from fish, caribou and water research and monitoring projects funded by the program from 2010-2015.
Please check out the NWT CIMP Annual Report 2015 2016 to learn about the different activities NWT CIMP conducted.
The NWT Inventory of Landscape Change webviewer provides disturbance mapping information in the Northwest Territories. With this public interface, you can display, manage and download human and natural disturbance layers generated for the NWT. Stay tuned for regular updates, as the amount of data in the webviewer will continue to grow as more and more people contribute disturbance mapping layers.
The NWT CIMP Action Plan 2016-2020 outlines the key objectives and activities of the program for the next five years. The plan builds on current program successes with a continued focus on three priority Valued Components: caribou, water and fish.
