Community forests Canada: Bridging practice, research and advocacy. A Symposium and Workshop Report.
The purpose of this report is to share experiences and observations from the Community Forests Canada joint workshop-symposium hosted by the Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research and Department of Environmental ...
Global Water Governance and Climate Change: Identifying Innovative Arrangements for Adaptive Transformation
(MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland., 2018)
A convoluted network of different water governance systems exists around the world. Collectively, these systems provide insight into how to build sustainable regimes of water use and management. We argue that the challenge ...
Aboriginal Capacity Building Achievements for Sustainable Natural Resource Development
(Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research, University of Winnipeg, 2016)
This knowledge synthesis report provides the first bibliometric profile and systemic review of research on Aboriginal capacity building for natural resource development in Canada.
Phosphorus Release from Unamended and Gypsum- or Biochar-Amended Soils under Simulated Snowmelt and Summer Flooding Conditions
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2020-03-30)
Prolonged flooding changes the oxidation–reduction status of soils, often enhancing P release to overlying floodwater. We studied P release from unamended, gypsum-amended, and biochar-amended soils under simulated snowmelt ...
Contemporary Water Governance: Navigating Crisis Response and Institutional Constraints through Pragmatism
(MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland, 2016)
Water has often been the source of crises and their frequency will intensify due to climate change impacts. The Niagara River Watershed provides an ideal case to study water crises as it is an international transboundary ...
Framing Indigenous Partnerships in Energy and Allied Renewable Resource Sectors. Final Report to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada
Canada is a top five global energy producer and thus is in a leadership position with respect to how it engages in international markets and, increasingly, energy partnerships. Growing global energy demand and international ...
Preparing for and Responding to Disturbance: Examples from the Forest Sector in Sweden and Canada
Coping or adaptation following large-scale disturbance may depend on the political system and its preparedness and policy development in relation to risks. Adaptive or foresight planning is necessary in order to account ...
Ecosystem Perceptions in Flood Prone Areas: A Typology and Its Relationship to Preferences for Governance
(MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland, 2016)
A shift appears to be occurring in thinking about flooding, from a resistance-based approach to one of resilience. Accordingly, how stakeholders in flood-prone regions perceive the system and its governance are salient ...
Are community forestry principles at work in Ontario’s County, Municipal, and Conservation Authority forests?
(The Forestry Chronicle, 2012)
Ontario’s County, Municipal and Conservation Authority forests have received little attention within the academic literature on community forestry in Canada. These “Agreement Forests”, as they were once called, are a product ...
Degree of Phosphorus Saturation as a Predictor of Redox-Induced Phosphorus Release from Flooded Soils to Floodwater
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2019-11-01)
Phosphorus (P) loss from soils is often enhanced under flooded, anaerobic conditions, increasing the risk of freshwater eutrophication. We aimed to develop a predictive tool to identify soils with greater P release potential ...
