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.
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.
