Sask Polytech collaborates with Prince Albert Model Forest, Daluhay to advance sustainable resource management


Saskatchewan Polytechnic is collaborating with Prince Albert Model Forest and Filipino non-profit organization Daluhay on a new applied research project that seeks to ensure Indigenous and rural communities benefit from digital resource management tools. Together, the partners will digitize information and develop data management tools for community-identified priorities in land and water stewardship. “Through this collaboration, the team aims to enhance access to digital spatial resources and empower community members with the skills needed to gather, manage and interpret data alongside Indigenous and local knowledge,” said Sask Polytech Associate VP, Applied Research and Innovation Dr Susan Blum. “By providing communities with robust data and training, we seek to foster positive change through community-driven action research.”
