The Indigenous Perspectives series seeks to profile successes and lessons learned in Indigenous-led initiatives responding to climate impacts, efforts to limit further warming, and participation in the global energy transition that climate change has unleashed. These case studies should be firmly rooted in specific times and places, and should explore particular events, policies, or initiatives in detail. They should also demonstrate insights that can be applied in other contexts or to broader policy design. Where possible, we encourage applicants to draw on traditional knowledge, two-eyed seeing, Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit, and intersectional climate change issues (for example, gender diversity and inclusion, racism and colonization, food sovereignty, food security, biodiversity).
This case study series is a partnership between the Canadian Climate Institute and the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER), a First Nation-directed national non-profit environmental charitable organization that provides support for case study authors throughout the case study development process.
Each case study author will work with CIER and Climate Institute staff, advisors, expert panelists and knowledge holders in their area of interest (mitigation, adaptation, or clean growth). Applications can either be related to work that is underway (connected to a PhD or post-doc, for example) or constitute original research.
Selected candidates will have their case study published by the Canadian Climate Institute and will be invited to participate in a public roundtable discussion with other authors. Chosen applicants will receive a research stipend of $15,000. This is a competitive process. Up to four applicants will be selected in this round.
