Description: 

The GNWT has developed a 2030 NWT Climate Change Strategic Framework 2019-2023 Action Plan (Action Plan), which is the first of two five-year Action Plans to support the implementation of the 2030 NWT Climate Change Strategic Frameworkand provide the NWT with a roadmap for addressing climate change. The Action Plan is directly linked to the 2030 Energy Strategy and the Energy Action Plan 2018-2021, and along with the NWT approach to carbon pricing, it will contribute to the goal of transitioning to a lower carbon economy.

Le GTNO a élaboré le Plan d’action 2019-2023 relatif au Cadre stratégique sur le changement climatique des TNO pour 2030 (le Plan d’action), le premier de deux plans quinquennaux qui appuient la mise en œuvre du Cadre stratégique sur le changement climatique des TNO pour 2030 (le Cadre), la feuille de route des TNO dans la lutte contre le changement climatique. Le plan d’action est le prolongement de la Stratégie énergétique 2030 des TNO et du Plan d’action énergétique 2018 à 2021; il a pour objectif, avec la tarification du carbone mise de l’avant par les TNO, d’assurer la transition vers une économie plus sobre en carbone.

Description: 

A draft Climate Change Strategic Framework was released by the GNWT for external comment during December 2016 and January 2017. Numerous comments were submitted by Indigenous governments, community organizations, industry, non-government organizations and the public, covering many themes and topics pertaining to climate change. This valuable input informed the final 2030 NWT Climate Change Strategic Framework. A broad summary of comments received, and what the GNWT did to address comments, is outlined under eight themes in this document.

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.
