The Northwest Territories Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program (NWT CIMP) is a source of environmental monitoring and research in the 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.
*NEW* NWT Environmental Research Bulletin
The NWT Environmental Research Bulletins (NERB) are series of brief plain language summaries of various environmental research findings in the Northwest Territories.
If you’re conducting environmental research in the NWT, consider sharing your information with northern residents in a bulletin.
These research summaries are also of use to northern resource decision-makers.
*NEW* Video of NWT CIMP Research in the Sahtu
Disturbance impacts on streams within the Sahtu is a short video about environmental monitoring that NWT CIMP scientist Krista Chin has been conducting in the Sahtu Region, in partnership with the Sahtu Renewable Resources Board. This project aims to develop an understanding of the cumulative impact of various disturbances on aquatic systems in watersheds draining the eastern foothills of the Central Mackenzie Valley.
