An Introduction to Indigenous Water Governance and Two-Eyed Seeing
This session presents a hands-on opportunity for water professionals to learn from Indigenous expert about place-based and values approaches to water governance, the application of Indigenous knowledge, co-governance principles, and the use of two-eyed seeing.
Indigenous experts are water experts. Though there has been some research on Indigenous knowledge of water, overall, most of the traditional and contemporary efforts, values, capacity and commitments remain undocumented or little known to decision-makers and water professionals.
The training is focussed on Indigenous-led approaches, cooperation strategies, capacity development activities, two-eyed seeing approaches that can transform the way communities think and act, and how non-Indigenous communities can better understand the role of relationships in governance.
Location: Room 26, Waterfront Congress Centre
