Community-Based Monitoring for Meaningful Incorporation of Indigenous and Local Knowledge
Community-Based Environmental Monitoring (CBEM), if done properly, can be more effective in incorporating ILK than environmental impact and monitoring based only on Western science. It is very useful to identify the environmental, health and social impacts of human activities in ecosystems, as well as to identify the potential cumulative effects of these activities.
Join Dr. Evgeniia (Jen) Sidorova, Canadian Northern Corridor Research Partner, and Dr. Luis Virla, Research Fellow at TU Delft and the University of Calgary, and Co-Director of InnoLab Space, as they present their latest research and discuss how to design comprehensive CBEM policy for large-scale infrastructure projects such as the Canadian Northern Corridor (CNC) concept.
This event will take place in person at the CNOOC North America Technology & Conference Centre (5th floor), School of Public Policy (906 8th Ave SW, Calgary), on Tuesday, January 10 from 8:00-10:00 am.
