Developing an educational module for multi-stakeholder facilitation linking nature-based climate solutions and IPCAs

Six million people in rural and Indigenous communities in Canada face water insecurity and associated risks to ecosystem functioning and biodiversity loss. Many of these communities could benefit from the implementation of nature-based solutions (NBCS). One challenge in the widespread implementation of these solutions is appropriate knowledge-sharing pathways, particularly in rural and Indigenous communities. This project will use the principles of reconciliation to develop strategies for knowledge dissemination in local communities. With the Isaak Olam Foundation, the intern will develop a module on the principles of ethical protocols to guide the interactions with and between community watershed stewardship groups, First Nation communities, government, and diverse interdisciplinary researchers. The goal of this research will be the development of an educational module for use by IOF and by the NBCS community toolkit proje
