Recommend to close.
3. To provide Aboriginal and northern communities with one-window access to funding opportunities, INAC should explore opportunities for coordinating its call for proposals and application processes with other similar programs.

AES:
In progress, moving in the right direction
4. To take advantage of the climate change adaptation research that has been completed, INAC should find additional ways to share results across communities through, for example, integrating data into the Government of Canada's International Polar Year database. Future programming (subject to renewal) will work closely with communities to facilitate information exchange Completion:

March 31, 2012
