Nick in Edmonton

Nicole Wilson (PhD student in IRES) and Jody Inkster (Environmental Manager at the Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council and a Ross River Dena Council citizen) presented on Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring among Alaska Native Tribes and First Nations in the Yukon River Basin at the 15th Biennial Global Conference for the International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC), which took place from May 25th to 29th in Edmonton, Alberta.

Throughout the conference Nicole and Jody had the opportunity to learn from many other First Nations in attendance that are conducting their own Community-Based Monitoring (CBM) programs. Additionally, they took part in a fieldtrip where representatives from Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation (NWT) and Keepers of the Athabasca spoke about environmental and health challenges they are facing in their territories and how they are using their CBM programs to document these changes.
