Waste management in Inuit Nunangat needs big fix: Oceans North report – Nunatsiaq News
Inuit need more direct decision-making involvement in waste management, says ITK
It’s time for higher levels of government to clean up an Arctic waste problem they helped create, says a report aimed at halving waste in the region by 2040.
“For decades, colonial government policies have encouraged the growth of static, southern-style communities while failing to create or fund the infrastructure necessary to support them,” states Oceans North, an environmental organization that focuses on marine conservation, in the report, released in March.
Challenges facing communities in Inuit Nunangat include limited or no waste separation, open-air burning of domestic waste and sub-standard facilities.
