National Inuit Climate Change Strategy

2019 – Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami

Climate change disproportionately affects the Inuit Nunangat environment, significantly changing the Inuit way of life and the wildlife and ecosystems that have sustained Inuit since time immemorial. The National Inuit Climate Change Strategy is an Inuit-led response to the global climate crisis.

It calls for, among other things, coordinated climate policy and decision making that improves Inuit quality of life rather than adding to the socio-economic inequities Inuit already face, and is inclusive of Inuit as rights holders and knowledge holders. It asserts that for climate actions to be effective, appropriate, equitable and sustainable for Inuit Nunangat, they must be in line with the collective Inuit vision for building the sustainability, prosperity and wellbeing of Inuit Nunangat.
