How is the Yukon government improving water management programs in Yukon?
YG has committed to a number of actions under the Yukon Water Strategy and Action Plan that aim to improve water management programs in the Yukon. These actions fall under the following two broad areas of work:
YG will be taking a range of actions to fulfill its commitment to improving water management programs. For instance, YG is planning to host an annual or biennial Water Forum in Yukon in order to exchange information between water managers and concerned water users, which will enable stakeholders to collaboratively address water issues. YG is also investing in research that will better enable it to determine current and future areas that are vulnerable to flooding, which will consequently better position YG to improve its land use practices and flood mitigation investments. These are just two examples of how YG plans to improve its water management programs through enhanced communication.
