Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan – Public Engagement

What was this engagement about?

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.

How could I participate?

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.

How will my input make a difference?

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.
