12th Annual NWT Water Stewardship Strategy Implementation Workshop

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is excited to host the 12th Annual NWT Water Stewardship Strategy Implementation Workshop with sessions from the new Climate Change Advisory Group and proposed Great Slave Lake Research and Monitoring Program virtually on November 16-18, from 9:00am – 12:00pm. 

This year’s workshop theme is Collaborating for Water, the workshop will focus on knowledge sharing to facilitate collaboration.

The workshop will bring water and climate change partners together to:

  • Share our recent work and discuss how we can work together to implement the new five-year NWT Water Stewardship Strategy Action Plan (2021-2025) and ensure continued progress towards the vision of the Water Strategy.
  • Introduce the purpose of the new Climate Change Adaptation Group and identify how we can collaborate to address climate change. This session will focus on working together to identify adaptation actions, priorities, and barriers to address water-related climate change risks.
  • Raise awareness of existing and proposed research and monitoring programs on Great Slave Lake (GSL), including the development of a coordinated GSL Research and Monitoring Program proposed by ENR. This session will feature presentations by Arctic Research Foundation, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and ENR about research and monitoring programs on GSL before seeking feedback from water partners on advancing local Indigenous collaboration and engagement.
