Northern Research for Northern Priorities

Research completed in the North and relevant to the North is essential to help the Government of Northwest Territories (GNWT), Aboriginal and federal governments, residents and communities increase our knowledge and understanding of climate change. The NWT is warming at a rate four to five times faster than the global average. This is causing significant changes in the natural environment. Investigation, experience and research relevant and valuable to NWT residents and communities will ensure we are better able to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. 

The Northwest Territories Knowledge Agenda outlines ways to acquire the necessary knowledge for meeting the northern interest, benefiting NWT residents and increasing the calibre of northern research. It is designed to minimize knowledge gaps and support evidence-based decision making at all levels of government.
