Science and Indigenous Knowledge are essential for informed decision-making on resource development in the Canadian Arctic. The Beaufort Regional Strategic Environmental Assessment Final Report was recently released. This assessment, informed by Science and Indigenous Knowledge, supports decision-making around possible future resource development and management, environmental conservation programs, subsistence activities and other complementary commercial activities; and, takes into changes in the state of the ecosystem. This side meeting brings interested parties together to share knowledge and best practices for using science and indigenous knowledge to conduct regional strategic environmental assessments.
