- Start: 4 February 2020
Description: Hosted by the Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects, the inaugural Indigenous Forum on Cumulative Effects brings together Indigenous communities, thought leaders and relevant Indigenous organizations to explore and discuss strategies to effectively manage the cumulative effects resulting from development and other activities, such as climate change, on their lands, resources and communities.
Grounded in Indigenous perspectives and worldviews, the Forum will highlight community-based experiences and best practices to address the cumulative impacts of human activities to the environmental, cultural, social and health of communities. In this way, the Forum will provide an innovative and engaging opportunity for Indigenous communities to network with each other as well as with experts and practitioners in a unique and interactive format. The Forum will also provide an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the newly-formed Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects and discuss how it can best serve the needs of Indigenous communities.
This event is primarily for First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities and relevant Indigenous organizations who undertake, or aspire to undertake cumulative effects assessment, monitoring and management in their communities.
Two delegates designated from the community or organization will be supported for travel to attend the Forum. Reimbursement is available: up to $2500 for delegates from Nations/organizations in the south and up to $4000 for delegates traveling from the north.
Dates: February 4-6, 2020
