The ReSDA network
February 10th, 2017
ReSDA – Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic – is a research network that brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines and organizations representing communities, government, the private sector, and non-profit organizations. It focuses mainly on the Canadian north, but with many resources that are also relevant for REXSAC and which can be explored on ReSDA’s website: http://yukonresearch.yukoncollege.yk.ca/resda/
ReSDA specifically examines ways to ensure that a larger share of the benefits of resource development stay in the region with fewer costs to communities. Through partnerships and collaborations it aims to conduct and mobilize research for sustainable development of Arctic natural resources in a manner that will improve the health and well-being of northern communities while preserving the region’s unique environment.
