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:
- Determining how best to track human disturbances in Eagle Plains. See these documents.
- 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.
