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.
