Community-based Northern Research Requires Community Support and Collaborations Through Organizational Networks

We work together on various projects in order to ensure that northern perspectives are represented and that northern interests are incorporated into the research questions and topics investigated.  Collaborative research can be challenging (especially from a distance!), but it also provides exciting opportunities for knowledge exchange and new ideas.  In northern communities where environmental, social, political, economic, and cultural issues are so intertwined, it is important to work with, and learn from, northern organizations and governments to ensure that research is appropriately conducted, as well as being targeted towards northern needs and interests. 

More details on community-based initiatives and results are found in the individual community pages, as well as through the reports and trips/photos pages.
