Assess the current status of the Region’s Greenlands

This task involved:

  • Developing a system for ranking each Greenland feature on the basis of its "security" (or degree of protection) given the current policy framework;
  • Applying the digital information on Greenlands and land use designations to develop a hierarchy of "policy protection," largely based on the protective status provided by Official Plan policies;
  • Creating a datafile on the information amassed by Gartner Lee and Neptis through this study, in order to document where the data came from, how they were manipulated or described, how accurate the data are, and where further information can be found.
