Aboriginal environmental health issues: Researchers' and decision makers' perceptions of knowledge transfer and exchange processes

January 2010

Environmental health policies are often the result of highly political processes, with varied impacts on communities, regions and interests. This newly released, NCCAH-supported report by a team of scholars sheds light on Canadian Aboriginal environmental health processes and makes recommendations to support improved sharing of information and knowledge. The report highlights the need to incorporate Traditional Knowledge in decision-making processes, and finds that relationships among researchers, communities and decision-makers must be based on trust, respect, empowerment and equity.
