Call for Indigenous Case Studies: Knowledge Dialogue on Indigenous Knowledge in Water Management

Join us for our upcoming online Knowledge Dialogue on the “Application of Indigenous Knowledge in Water Management: Best Practice Models” and be part of a community-driven knowledge-sharing session on Indigenous and Traditional Ecological Knowledge best practices for freshwater management.

The objective of this Knowledge Dialogue is to create and provide an ethical space of respectful dialogue for learning and knowledge-sharing amongst Indigenous peoples from various regions of North America, and to exchange experiences and lessons learned in the context of freshwater management. The event will be attended by representatives of Indigenous peoples, government representatives, international organizations and agencies specialized in the field.

Open call for case studies

If you are an Indigenous knowledge-holder and belong to an Indigenous community of North America that is managing or has in the recent past managed freshwater resources using Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), Indigenous knowledge, oral traditions or respective cultural contexts and protocols, we would like to invite you to share your best practice approaches with us in the online Knowledge Dialogue.

The deadline to submit your case is 4 November 2022.

For questions or more information, please contact: ylopez@cec.org

Mark your calendars

The event will be held virtually via Zoom, on 22 November 2022 from 11:00 – 13:00 Eastern Time. The dialogue will have English, Spanish and French interpretation. Additional registration details will follow.  We look forward to seeing you at the event!
