NWT allocates $1.7M to Indigenous Knowledge, science research projects

The Government of the Northwest Territories has announced that it will fund six new projects under its Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program. $1.7M will go toward monitoring and research projects conducted by Indigenous governments, Indigenous organization, universities, and territorial and federal government departments. The projects focus on topics related to Indigenous Knowledge and science, such as a study of how mine cleanup efforts may be affected by climate change and the development of a new approach to monitoring Akaitcho water quality. “These projects help us to better understand environmental changes impacting caribou, water, and fish in Northwest Territories,” says Shane Thompson, NWT Minister of Environment and Natural Resources.
