The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) invites Northwest Territories (NWT) residents to have their say on a draft 2019-2023 Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan.
Submit your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 19, 2019.
The GNWT heard from residents about challenges, needs, opportunities and priorities related to country foods, traditional economies, land-based learning and traditional knowledge.
Feedback from residents will help us identify potential actions the GNWT can take to support community-driven sustainable livelihoods programs and initiatives, which will be developed into an ENR Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan. Input on traditional knowledge will be used to develop a GNWT Traditional Knowledge Action Plan.
- Results of the public review of the draft 2019-2023 Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan will be reported back through a ‘What we Heard’ report, which will be posted here following this engagement.
- Results of initial engagement toward the development of a draft Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan can be found in this summary report.
