Climate action within Inuit Nunangat must be led by Inuit.

We maintain that no one is more equipped to understand and take action on climate change in our homeland.

We understand the complexity and diversity of the impact climate change has on our environment. For climate action to be effective, appropriate, sustainable, and equitable across Inuit Nunangat, our strategy must be based within Inuit knowledge and leadership.

Our guiding principles inform all of the work that we do.

  • rights and self-determination
  • leadership and resilience
  • long-term and holistic

Our climate action strategy is committed to using Inuit knowledge to build sustainable and resilient Inuit communities in the face of an ever-changing climate and landscape.

Vision and Purpose

The National Inuit Climate Change Strategy (NICCS) is the collective Inuit plan for climate action. It outlines the core actions we need to take to protect our culture, language, and way of life.


We are focused on 5 priority areas:
1. knowledge and capacity building; 2. health, well-being, and the environment; 3. food systems; 4. infrastructure; and 5. energy.
