Summary: The broad goal of the project is to create opportunities to collaboratively document and share local and traditional knowledge (LTK) about social-ecological change in the Mackenzie River Basin, Lower Mekong, and Lower Amazon Basins and determine its’ role in watershed governance. The project will fund 8-10 community-based and collaborative research activities in the Mackenzie River Basin that deal...


Using Traditional Knowledge of JMRFN Elders to better understand changes in the boreal caribou habitat.
Principal Investigator: Laurent, Cyrielle C
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: This project aims to demonstrate the cumulative impact of permafrost degradation and forest fire on boreal caribou habitat and how caribou habitat degradation affects Jean Marie River First Nation (JMRFN). To do this the research team will collect and use traditional knowledge (TK), and analyse it in a geographic information system (GIS) with scientific data. The research team expect to locate are...


Human Dimensions of a Thawing Landscape
Principal Investigator: Strickert, Graham
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The purpose of the research is to advance understanding about how existing knowledge (e.g. social and biophysical science products and ancestral and local knowledge) can be used to meet the needs of communities to develop climate adaptation strategies. Researchers seek to answer the questions: “How can biophysical and social science products combine to meet the needs of northern Aboriginal communi...


A conceptual model for best practice in environmental knowledge translation in indigenous communities
Principal Investigator: Ford, James D
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) perform a literature review of articles relating to best practice for knowledge translation (KT) in the fields of environmental research and indigenous community research; 2) extract theoretically identified best practice from both and merge into a framework of best practice for KT of environmental research in indigenous communities; and, 3) conduct interv...

Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. describe the beluga-Inuvialuit linked social-ecological system; 2. characterize Inuvialuit traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) of beluga whale: ecology and behaviour, hunting techniques, and food preparation; 3. document current stresses affecting beluga and Inuvialuit hunters and adaptive responses; and, 4. identify opportunities for TEK ...


Geoscience Tools for Supporting Environmental Risk Assessment of Metal Mining
Principal Investigator: Galloway, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: This project will focus on providing baseline information for areas of high resource potential. In areas of past land use and soon to be developed areas in the Slave Geological Province, the project will generate new spatial and temporal data on changing geochemical, permafrost, ecological and climate data for the past 1000 years. This data will be integrated with Traditional Ecological Knowledge ...
