Building Local Capacity to address Climate Change in the Great Bear Lake Watershed
  • General public
The environment continues to change in the Saht region of the Northwest Territories. As a result, the local people need to both understand this change and learn how to adapt to it. From 2009 to 2011, this project provides training to 24 students from the community of Dline in the Northwest Territories on how to monitor the environmental health of the Great Bear Lake Watershed. This project will help increase the role that Saht organizations and residents play in Northern scientific research, and integrate scientific and traditional climate change knowledge. Their work will help to establish the baseline environmental condition of Great Bear Lake Watershed.
