Natural Resources Management 5133 Indigenous Peoples & Natural Resources Management
Natural resource development, whether focused on timber or non-timber forest products, minerals, energy from both renewable and non-renewable sources, the establishment of protected areas (conservation), or environmental services, can have an impact on Indigenous peoples’ relationship with their homelands. This course will explore through a series of case studies how government policy attempts to address Indigenous peoples' interests in natural resources development, the impacts of such development and how Indigenous peoples have responded. The course will focus on understanding the current context for addressing Indigenous issues in natural resources development and exploring alternative approaches that, at their core, respect Indigenous peoples and treaty rights.
