An independent evaluation of the Water Stewardship Strategy Action Plan 2016-2020 (Action Plan) has been released.
Every five years an independent evaluation of the Action Plan is done to determine progress and outcomes of the activities undertaken by water partners. The Action Plan describes how water partners will work collaboratively on Action Items to implement Northern Voices, Northern Waters: NWT Water Stewardship Strategy (Water Strategy). The objective of the evaluation was to assess work done in advancing the goals of the Water Strategy and make recommendations for the development of the 2021-2025 Action Plan.
The evaluation lists 19 recommendations and notes that overall there is a high level of satisfaction with the ongoing implementation of the Water Strategy and much progress is being made achieving the Action Plan items and keys to success.
