The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) invited Northwest Territories (NWT) residents to have their say on the development of a 2019-2023 Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan.
The public was asked to read the draft 2019-2023 Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan and submit comments.
The deadline to submit comments is now closed.
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 helped us identify potential actions the GNWT can take to support community-driven sustainable livelihoods programs and initiatives, which was used to develop an ENR Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan. Input on traditional knowledge will be used to develop a GNWT Traditional Knowledge Action Plan.
