Yukon Climate Change Inventory Map
As part of the Yukon Indigenous Community Climate Change Champions and the Linking a Changing Climate with a Changing Traditional Diet projects, AICBR is mapping climate change assets across the Yukon. The goal of this mapping work is to characterize current climate change adaptation, mitigation and monitoring activities and entities across the territory, strengthen potential partnerships between organizations and communities and further information sharing and knowledge mobilization to inspire action at the community and policy levels.

Yukon climate change Inventory
The data was gathered through a mixture of compiling existing partner inventories, conducting community outreach to Yukon communities (between October - November 2018) and an online survey.
Creating an inventory of climate change initiatives, entities and services will allow us to identify promising practices and where more work might be needed to improve our territory’s self-sufficiency and ability to reduce greenhouse gases and adapt to current climate change challenges. This climate change map is linked with the Yukon Food System Inventory Map and as such, does not include climate change initiatives that relate to our food system. As part of Year 3 (2019) of the Linking a Changing Climate with a Changing Traditional Diet project, AICBR will be doing some face-to-face workshops across Yukon communities and developing some educational tools and knowledge products to promote the maps and strengthen networks. In 2020, a second iteration of the food system and climate change maps will be completed to capture new or missing initiatives, not currently featured. If you have a project, you wish to see represented on the map - we invite you to fill out the online survey below.
