Ddhaw Ghro is an isolated mountain range in central Yukon. The area has been important to Northern Tutchone people for thousands of years. It has several features of regional significance, including unglaciated alpine areas and plant communities. It is also known for the Chu Tthaw Hot Springs, the fannin sheep population, the rich cultural history of the Northern Tutchone People and the intact mountain ecosystem. In 1948, the government of Canada established the Ddhaw Ghro area as the McArthur Game Sanctuary. Then, in 1993, it was identified for further protection under the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun Final Agreement. ... As part of the Selkirk First Nation Final Agreement, a Ddhaw Ghro steering committee was...

This thesis investigates the theory and practice of integration in resource and environmental management. Research on integration is growing as a result of the escalating demands placed on resources, an increase in the quality and quantity of information available concerning the environment, and the increased involvement and coordination of partners and participants in resource and environmental decision-making. Focus is placed on several resource and environmental management processes in the Southwest Yukon, including wildlife management, protected areas management, forest management and environmental assessment. A case study approach is utilized to examine the perception and practical application of integration...
Rural community participation in scientific knowledge production processes has become a central component of research and development policy and practice internationally. However, relatively little is known about the factors that influence the development of successful research partnerships in the applied natural sciences, as well as their associated outcomes. This paper presents an in-depth case study of a successful community-researcher natural resource science partnership in the Canadian Arctic. The results suggest both context and process-related factors were important to the research partnership, including funding and performance assessment processes, leadership and capacity at the community level, the proposal...

"Regional land use planning in the Yukon has a long and unfortunate history of failed efforts. Under Chapter 11 of the Yukon First Nations Umbrella Final Agreement, a new process for planning has been in place since 1993. Through qualitative, interview-based research, I explore possible factors that either hinder or facilitate successful planning. I used the North Yukon regional land use planning effort as a case study example of the first plan to be successfully approved in Yukon history. A number of challenges resulting from poorly defined roles and responsibilities caused notable struggles and conflict throughout the process, but fortunately, strong political support and micro and meso –level organization,...

Foreword In 1984, the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA) was signed by the Committee for Original Peoples Entitlement (COPE) on behalf of the Inuvialuit, and by the governments of Canada, the Northwest Territories and Yukon. The basic goals expressed by the Inuvialuit and recognized by the parties in this Agreement, are captured in the following three principles: (a) To preserve Inuvialuit cultural identity and values within a changing northern society; (b) To enable Inuvialuit to be equal and meaningful participants in the northern and national economy and society; and, (c) To protect and preserve the Arctic wildlife, environment and biological productivity. Yukon North Slope Section 12 of the IFA includes the provisions...

a wide range of people and groups have interests in the Peel River watershed, from community people who rely on the watershed for drinking water, big game outfitters and tourism operators who guide here, trappers who use trap-lines, members of the public who pursue outdoor recreation activities, conservationists who seek the protection of important ecological areas, to businesses and industries that seek to explore for oil, gas and mineral resources or pursue other economic activities. It is important that this wide range of interests be considered when developing a land use and conservation plan. Although lots of information exists for some aspects of the Peel watershed, others are not nearly as well known. This...

The Chisana caribou herd (CCH) is a small international herd occurring in Yukon and Alaska on the Klutlan Plateau and near the headwaters of the White River. During the 1990s through 2003, the herd experienced a long and steady decline in population. Low recruitment, predation, climate, habitat, and harvest pressure likely all contributed to the decline. From 2003 to 2006, a recovery effort designed to increase recruitment and calf survival was conducted. Pregnant cows were captured and enclosed within a holding pen during the last weeks of gestation and a few weeks following calving. During recovery planning and upon the completion of the program, the need for a management plan was stressed by the recovery team....

Last year, Yukon Energy Corporation (YEC) hired scientists from the Yukon Research Centre's Northern Climate Exchange, the University of Alberta and the Yukon Geological Survey to gather information on the expected impacts of climate change on the glaciers that feed YEC's hydro systems. Here are some of the key findings: 1. Glaciers currently contribute 16 percent and 7 percent of the total annual flow volume of the Upper Yukon River through melt and wastage, respectively. Melt refers to snow and ice that is less than or equivalent to the volume of snow accumulated into a glacier system each year. Wastage is melt that exceeds the volume of snow accumulation into a glacier system in a given year, resulting in a net...

Our goal has been to develop a community plan as a foundation in preparing Whitehorse for climate change. Our intention was that overall this work should contribute to the sustainable well-being of the community. The plan provides a broad analysis of the risks and opportunities of climate change, and makes a series of recommendations. It is now up to the decision-makers within the community - the City of Whitehorse, Government of Yukon, Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, Kwanlin Dün First Nation and other community groups to decide upon the next steps and carry the work forward.
