The upcoming online Knowledge Dialogue on the “Application of Indigenous Knowledge in Water Management: Best Practice Models” taking place on November 22, 2022, from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm EST, is designed to be 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.
