Nature-based Solutions and Conservation
With the Enhancing capacity for riparian management within Indigenous communities to increase socio-ecological resilience project, Cows and Fish will improve riparian management in Indigenous communities by sharing their expertise with landowners, land managers, and conservation staff. This will involve training on riparian health assessment, restoration, and management to increase knowledge and skills. The goal is to expand the impact of the project by having trained individuals share their expertise with their communities. The funding will support increased training demands from Indigenous environment and lands departments. Cows and Fish will tailor the training to the needs of each community, invest more time in relationship building to co-develop and deliver sessions, and incorporate diverse approaches to enable sharing of expertise and ways of knowing.
