  • Tracking Change: Local and Traditional Knowledge in Watershed Governance (File number: 895-2015-1024 University of Alberta)

  • Tracking Change is a network of Indigenous/community organizations, governments and academics aimed at building capacity to document and share local and traditional knowledge (LTK) about social-ecological change in the Mackenzie River, Lower Mekong, and Lower Amazon basins; and determine its’ role in watershed governance. Community-Based Projects were funded (through a proposal-submission process) in each of 2016 and 2017. Twelve community-led projects involving more than 30 communities took place in 2016-2017; they involved similar research methods and activities including fish camps, canoe trips, youth-elder knowledge exchanges, semistructured interviews, and workshops. A Community-Based Research Toolbox, developed collaboratively with communities in the Mackenzie River Basin and those working in the Mekong and Amazon (Tapojos) watershed, has been a key outcome of the project to date and is anticipated to become the basis of a collection of publications on community-based monitoring. This Midterm Report provides an overall view of what the partnership has accomplished by the midpoint of the award, and provided sufficient information to allow the Midterm Review Committee to assess the progress of activities undertaken. It is both a description of the activities and accomplishments to the mid term, and a forward-looking document that confirms and updates the plan of activities designed to ensure the achievement of the stated goals and objectives of the partnership.
