A Review of the Peel Watershed Common Land Use Planning Process

Tuesday, February 16, 2016. 1:30-1:40 Poster Presentations

To date the Common Land Use Planning Process (planning process) has struggled in producing regional land use plans that are approved and implemented by both the Yukon and the First Nations government(s).

The goal of this research project was to capture the knowledge and experience of those involved in the Peel Watershed planning process that took place between 2002 and 2014. Gathering this knowledge will contribute to improving the planning process in the Yukon, where past successes and challenges inform improved future applications.

In the short term, recommendations from my project are intended to contribute to the successful completion of regional land use plans in the Yukon, which in the long run may provide greater certainty for a multitude of users and reduce the prevalence of land use conflicts throughout the Yukon Territory.
