Land use planning and management

In addition to increasing impacts caused by climate change, Nunavik is subject to intense pressure created by the development of a multitude of activities arising from its population growth, its transportation needs, its immense wealth in natural resources and its hydroelectric potential. Even though land use development planning is a government responsibility, the KEAC believes it is important to develop close collaboration between northern stakeholders, responsible government departments and the region’s residents with a view to the sustainable development of the communities and Nunavik.
