Land and Resource Management – Overview Diagram

Land and resource management in the NWT is a web of interrelated areas.

The four main categories to be considered are:

  • Land and resource ownership and access
  • Environmental assessment, land and water regulation, issuance of permits and inspection
  • Wildlife and renewable resource management
  • Land use planning

The system needs to be integrated and coordinated and monitored, based on the principles of co-management.

Inspection and enforcement is presently the responsibility of the federal and territorial governments.
