Understanding the Arctic Through A Co-Production of Knowledge

April 11, 2018 @ 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm AKDT

Speakers: Carolina Behe, Inuit Circumpolar Council Alaska; Julie Raymond-Yakoubian, Kawerak, Inc.; Raychelle Daniel, The Pew Charitable Trust

The Arctic is changing at an accelerated rate due to climate change and increased anthropogenic activity. Given the rate of change, never has it been more important to work toward a holistic understanding of the Arctic’s interconnecting systems.

A co-production of knowledge framework will provide the holistic view and comprehension needed to inform effective and adaptive policies and practices.

We underscore the role and value of different knowledge systems with different methodologies and the need for collaborative approaches in identifying research questions. We will present the most important components that form a co-production of knowledge framework.
