Forest Values & Genomic Selection: Perspectives of Stakeholder Groups in Two West-Central Alberta CommunitiesDownload
Forests face a variety of environmental and societal pressures and genomics offers one possible tool to help alleviate these pressures. However, public perceptions of genomic selection when used in tree breeding are not well understood. This study seeks to examine how stakeholders from forest...
Frequent Spring Flooding Impacts, Evacuation Experiences, and Perceived Adaptive Capacity of Kashechewan First Nation, Northern OntarioDownload
Kashechewan First Nation, located in the southwestern James Bay (Subarctic) region of northern Ontario, is frequently affected by the flooding risk and recurring evacuations. Residents have been evacuated 14 times since 2004 (consecutively from 2004-2008 and 2012-2019) to at least 22 different...
Global Problems with Local Impacts: Exploring the Health Impacts of Climate Change and Air Pollution in Older Adults and Immigrants Living in CanadaDownload
As human actions continue to drive global climate change and increase air pollution, these two closely related environmental phenomena pose a significant threat to public health. Because of Canada’s geographical location, it is warming at twice the rate of the global average, which is expected to...
Governance Institutions and the Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change in Two Rural Communities in AlbertaDownload
Adaptation is now recognized as an important aspect of responses to climate change. Rural communities in the prairie provinces of Canada are considered to be sensitive to the impacts of climate change due to socio-economic and geographical factors. This study examines the ways in which governance...
Hydroclimate Changes to Arid regions subjected to Impact of climate change, human activities, and Large-scale climate patternsDownload
In recent years, many regions worldwide have suffered from natural hazards related to the impact of human activities and climate change, such as floods and droughts, sea level rise, extreme weather events and an accelerated hydrological cycle. In Africa, the driest continent on Earth, climate...
SSHRC CG awarded 2021: The purpose of the proposed Connection Grant is to convene a one day conference and implementation dialogue that considers the key features of Alberta's present industrial transition in the oil and gas sector and draws on comparative policy learning to share leading just...
SSHRC IDG Awarded 2018: This research-creation project asks “What is a contemporary landscape?” Building on cultural geographers' insights that the natural environment provides a setting for cultural processes and belief systems, we will explore the history of ideas and images in traditional...
SSHRC Awarded PG 2015. Lead institution is the University of Victoria. UAlberta's Parkland Institute is a partner in the project. The intensifying development of Western Canada's fossil fuel resources has far-reaching implications for our economic and ecological wellbeing, the acceleration of...
SSHRC KSG awarded 2020: For this project, we will generate three scoping reviews to examine health-related exposure to extreme events like heat waves, wildfires, floods, drought, and air pollution; populations' sensitivity to these exposures; and the adaptive capacity of systems, institutions,...
SSHRC Knowledge Synthesis grant awarded 2020. The project explores prior research to learn about health-related climate change vulnerability, as assessed in terms of exposure (contact), sensitivity (characteristics that may increase risk), and adaptive capacity (ability to adjust) across...
