Folder 03.4 Relevant Documents - GNWT Overarching Strategies and Action Plans



This framework is a result of recommendations outlined in the Auditor General of Canada’s October 2017 report on Climate Change in the NT. It provides the territory with direction between now and 2030 to act locally, while fulfilling our commitments to Canada and the world. Work is focused on three overriding goals:

Goal 1: Transition to a strong, healthy economy that uses less fossil fuel, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30% below 2005 levels by 2030.

Goal 2: Improve knowledge of the climate change impacts occurring in the NWT.

Goal 3: Build resilience and adapt to a changing climate.
