Tracking Change: Traditional Knowledge in Watershed Governance
We build and share knowledge about the sustainability of three of the world’s largest freshwater ecosystems.
Fishers have been tracking change in the same places, in the same ways, using the same signs & signals for many generations. Such traditional knowledge is key to our understanding of many kinds of issues from resource development, to climate change, and other land uses. This tracking of change is not simply a technical process; people watch, listen, learn, and communicate about change because they care about the health of the land and the health of their communities.
We invite you to explore this website and to learn more about how local and Indigenous communities in the Mackenzie, Amazon, and Mekong Basins are Tracking Change.
