Local observations and scientific studies suggest that climate change could have serious consequences for Nunavut. Impacts ranging from changes in sea ice distribution and abundance to melting permafrost could affect the health and well-being of our people.

The Government of Nunavut has identified the following key climate change priority areas for Nunavut:

  1. Advancing climate change knowledge
  2. Building community capacity for adaptation
  3. Measurement and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
