Description: 

The Government of the Northwest Territories launched a public engagement process in November 2017 to gather input on the future of waste management in the Northwest Territories (NWT). A Discussion Paper, Developing a Waste Resource Management Strategy, was shared broadly and feedback collected is being used to shape the development of a Waste Resource Management Strategy (Strategy). The Strategy will serve as a ten-year road map for improving waste resource management in the NWT. This document summarizes the feedback from the public engagement on the Strategy.

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: 

Annual report by the Forest Management Division of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on forest health conditions across the NWT. The forest health program monitors whether or not the forest has the capacity for renewal after a wide range of disturbances, for the retention of its ecological resiliency while meeting current and future needs of NWT residents. The focus of the forest health program has been on monitoring insect and disease impacts in the NWT forests. However, since 2015, FMD has also been recording abiotic disturbances to address the uncertainty of forest ecosystem response to a changing climate. Examples of abiotic disturbances recorded during monitoring surveys include: drought symptoms (reddening of foliage, sun scalding scars, stunted and gnarled foliage), flooding, wind and snow damage, land slumps, and permafrost related disturbance (“drunken forest” phenomenon). General decline of some tree species is also tracked.

Description: 

Ever wonder how to easily track wildlife in the winter? A pilot study in the Sahtu Region collected such information helping to achieve the regional coverage necessary for monitoring changes to wildlife distribution brought about by industrial development, natural disturbance and climate change. Environment and Natural Resources’ issue #15 of the NWT al Research Bulletin (NERB) series is now available and highlights Tracking Wildlife in the Sahtu Region. Bulletins are issued regularly here to provide a summary of research findings or concepts for NWT residents and northern resource decision makers. Please feel free to circulate broadly.
