Mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts will be critical for the well-being of Northwest Territories communities in the future. The Climate Change and Communities Forum was an opportunity for municipal leaders and staff to provide information, share knowledge and promote regional action to help address climate change effects in Northwest Territories communities. Approximately 125 people attended the forum, and participants represented 27 of the 33 communities in the NWT. In addition to municipal leaders and staff, the forum was attended by researchers, government and representatives from other organizations with an interest in climate change adaptation and mitigation.
