Planning – Community Plans Projects / New Initiatives
Projects / Climate Change Nunavut Community Planners have always taken into consideration the Impacts of Climate Change with regards to Community Planning such as: (if data were available) Shoreline Erosion Geotechnical Issues Drainage Issues Watershed Issues Snow Drifting Issues The Climate Change Project, however has brought attention to these issues and has enabled CGS/Municipalities to obtain more studies/data on the above issues.
Projects / Climate Change With CGS being involved in this Project, we can ensure that relevant data can be incorporated into the community plans. The following Slides identify the Climate Change Projects that CGS has participated in.
Projects / Climate Change Planning – Mapping and Climate Change Projects WATERSHED STUDIES Since 2005 CGS have been working on mapping the Watershed Boundaries for all 24 communities. In 2009, we were able to complete the project. NEW PROJECT : Bathymetry and watershed mapping techniques NRCAN/INAC/GN/Nunavut Research Institute (NRI).
Projects / Climate Change Planning – Mapping and Climate Change Projects TERRAIN ANALYSIS Obtained funding from INAC through Climate Change Program to conduct Terrain Analysis Study for the following communities: Cambridge Bay, Chesterfield Inlet, Rankin Inlet, Baker Lake, Hall Beach, Sanikiluaq, Gjoa Haven, Coral Harbour, Kugaaruk, Taloyoak, Repulse Bay, Cape Dorset, Kimmirut and Pond Inlet. NRCAN previously conducted studies under the INAC Climate Change Program for Kugluktuk, Arviat, Whale Cove, Clyde River and Pangnirtung Other studies have been completed for Qikiqtarjuaq and Arctic Bay.
Projects / Climate Change Planning – Mapping and Climate Change Projects Previously CGS/MACA had conducted Geotechnical Studies for: Repulse Bay Kugluktuk Clyde River Pond Inlet Baker Lake Rankin Inlet We also have numerous Granular Reports and geotechnical reports for site specific Projects.
Projects / Climate Change Planning – Climate Change Projects Suitable for development Possibly suitable for development Marginally suitable for development Unsuitable for development Unknown suitability Suitability Classes
Projects / Climate Change Planning – Climate Change Projects Community and Government Services Planners were also involved with the Climate Change Adaptation Plans which were prepared by CIP.
Projects / Climate Change Planning – Climate Change Projects CGS Planners participated in the meetings during the CIP planner’s community visits. CGS Planners were able to provide input but most importantly were able to hear the concerns of the communities on climate change
