About 80 people braved the chilly weather to attend a regional planning conference in Dawson City on January 18th and 19th. This well received conference used a combination of presentations, break-out work groups, and a panel discussion to address the evaluation of trade-offs, frameworks for conservation assessment and economic and social consequences of resource development.
Here are the documents from the Atlin Taku Land Use Plan forum hosted by YLUPC on November 17, 2011.

Cumulative Effects Workshop Westmark Whitehorse Inn March 2, 2005
The current science and theory behind cumulative effects thresholds will be discussed, as will potential data and implementation issues. Brief presentations will focus discussion topics. A major goal of this workshop is to provide an informal forum for local resource managers and agencies to discuss and critique the concepts and relevancy of the thresholds concept for Yukon. (Held February 2003)
To further explore the Common Land Use Planning Process(C.L.U.P.P.), a series of facilitated discussions were held with participants of the Workshop. The participants were divided into three groups, and each group was asked to discuss: the "core" or required elements of CLUPP; the process leading to approval within each of the Parties; how to build capacity for planning within each Party; and the priorities for regional planning. Based on these discussions, general priorities and a set of "Core" strategies are proposed as part of a Common Land Use Planning Process. (Held May 2002)
On December 6 & 7, 2000, the Yukon Land Use Planning Council held a conference entitled Ready or Not Here We Plan! The Yukon Territory is on the verge of conducting regional planning exercises in areas where Yukon First Nation land claims are settled. The first commissions are sailing into Chapter 11's uncharted waters where the planning environment is still churning with change. (Held December 2000)
The Council organized the Workshop to address challenges associated with the establishment of Regional Land Use Planning Commissions in the Yukon and to create an understanding of these challenges within the parties involved in their resolution. The Council invited representatives from the Yukon First Nations, Canada, the Yukon Government and relevant Umbrella Final Agreement organizations.
