The Hydro-Climatic Monitoring Roadmap: A guide to enabling hydro climatic monitoring in Indigenous communities
Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) Network of Networks (NoN) will support Canadian communities in establishing hydro-climactic monitoring programs to strengthen local stewardship over environmental resources and capacity building in communities through funding the development of monitoring programs, which include skills development, job creation, and training.
This report describes these components and provides a step by step guide for how to build an overarching monitoring framework that is scientifically rigorous, technically feasible, decision-oriented, and scalable. This guidance is applied to two different Indigenous communities (Matawa First Nations Management and Dehcho First Nations) to illustrate how it can be applied more broadly.
The report includes the following sections:
