Northwest Boreal Partnership
The Northwest Boreal Partnership geography falls within the boreal forest biome and includes Southcentral and Interior Alaska, the Yukon, northern British Columbia, and much of the Northwest Territories. The area includes over 330 million acres, and encompasses large portions of the Yukon, Kuskokwim, Susitna, and Copper River Basins.
We work with partners and communities who live in and who manage lands and resources within this general geography.
The Partnership also transcends international boundaries. Our work focuses on shared lands, waters, wildlife, and cultural ties. Rather than being limited by drawn borders, we instead collaborate to find solutions to the challenges posed by a rapidly changing environment due to climate change and other drivers.
Northern Latitudes Partnerships
The Northwest Boreal Partnership is one of three regional partnerships that comprise the Northern Latitudes Partnerships. This network of partnerships, each focusing on and working in distinct geographical regions, was created from a collective of dedicated people representing organizations, government agencies, Indigenous organizations and governments, and academia. Together, they recognize the complexity and continued importance of both facing challenges and embracing opportunity. The Northern Latitudes Partnerships are determined to continue supporting collaborative stewardship across geographic and disciplinary boundaries to ensure that people are culturally, environmentally, and economically secure in a rapidly changing North.
There are three groups that comprise the Northern Latitudes Partnerships:
