NWT CIMP Regional Project Summaries now available
The Northwest Territories Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program (NWT CIMP) provides important environmental information about cumulative impacts and environmental trends to decision-makers and communities. Cumulative impact monitoring is a requirement of settled land claim agreements in the NWT, and the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act.
Cumulative impacts are changes in the environment caused by human activities and natural processes that accumulate over space and time. It is important to understand both the environmental impacts of individual developments and the cumulative impacts of many developments in a region.
NWT CIMP projects throughout the Northwest Territories (NWT) address key regional cumulative impact questions of regulators, governments and communities.
