Human Environmental Health Impact Assessment: A Framework for Indigenous Communities

Human Environmental Health Impact Assessment is a vital part of any environmental assessment or decision-making process on natural resource management. First Nations have questioned the government-led processes and have called for more community-driven and culturally relevant health models. This project will conduct three case-studies with First Nations who are affected by major developments that require(d) human environmental health impact assessments. The results of the case studies will be synthesized to develop a new framework for First Nations communities to use when assessing the potential benefits and risks of proposed developments within their territories.
