New website compiles information about current research and monitoring in Yukon

The Government of Yukon has launched a new website that offers information about research and monitoring initiatives conducted by or in partnership with the Yukon government. The Compendium of Current Research and Monitoring site summarizes work underway in the fields of agriculture, economy, climate change, environment, health, social sciences and more.

The site is intended to support the pursuit, gathering and storage of scientific knowledge so research can be easily shared and used to promote evidence-based decision making.
