Old Crow venues for implementation talks: the public lunch in the building in the background, more technical talks in the building in the foreground

The North Yukon Regional Land Use Plan was approved in 2009, making it Yukon's first (and only) regional plan to be approved under the Umbrella Final Agreement. Since then, some parts of the plan have been implemented, while others are still in progress. In recent months, we have been requested by the Plan's Parties (Vuntut Gwitchin and Yukon Governments) to assist by providing financial and staff resources to some implementation projects as well as attend implementation meetings between the Parties. Currently, we are involved in two projects that may serve as templates for other planning regions:

  1. Determining how best to track human disturbances in Eagle Plains. See these documents.
  2. Analysing field data on disturbance and recovery dynamics in Eagle Plains

We will also be providing feedback and input into other implementation activities, such as the development of an access management plan for the Eagle Plains petroleum basin and the Plan's amendment and review processes.

High-resolution imagery (0.5m pixels) reveals recent cut-lines (towards image left and centre) not easily seen with medium-high resolution imagery (1.5m pixels) (cut-lines seen at this resolution are shown with orange dashed lines). Different imagery and different levels of interpretation detail are being evaluated for mapping and quantifying human-caused disturbances in Eagle Plains.
