The Government of the Northwest Territories has taken over management of lands, waters and resources in the NWT.  There are major concerns with the terms of the deal and its implementation.  

Alternatives North is participating in public activities to promote debate on the implementation of devolution, and to improve the quality of resource management that will be developed.
