The City of Iqaluit became a member of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) in November 2002 and committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from municipal operations within ten years. In March of 2003, the City completed A Proposal for Climate Change Action and received funding from the Aboriginal and Northern Climate Change Program to complete a 6-month project, starting in September of 2003. This report includes the results of the program and details the major tasks completed and some of the challenges faced and lessons learned while developing the program. The major work tasks include developing partnerships, researching, conducting a GHG inventory for all municipal operations, setting a reduction target, developing a local action plan for the City of Iqaluit, implementing a communication strategy and writing funding proposals.
