Environmental Assessment And Saskatchewan's First Nations: A Resour...
Christa Rust, and Brenda McLeod, 2008
i. About the Handbook
This handbook was developed to assist in building capacity and improving the overall understanding of environmental assessment (EA) within the First Nations communities of Saskatchewan. It was developed by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) under contract with the Prince Albert Model Forest (PAMF). The content is based on the inputs collected at the first meeting of the PAMF Aboriginal Caucus which was held on May 15, 2008, in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. The training module is intended to be a training tool and community resource for First Nations interested in participating in EA.
ii. About the Aboriginal Caucus
The Aboriginal Caucus was created by the Board of the PAMF in an effort to bring all Aboriginal partners to a common table to share ideas, discuss concerns and formulate solutions. The development of the Aboriginal Caucus was made possible by PAGC funding through INAC Lands & Environment Assistance Program. The goal of the Caucus is to highlight First Nations issues, while seeking to engage First Nations members of the PAMF in a meaningful way. The Caucus is intended to address the need for ongoing and direct involvement with Aboriginal partners and also serve as the learning platform that will guide Aboriginal training, understanding and participation in the forest resource sector. This handbook is the first initiative of the PAMF Aboriginal Caucus.
