    A prospective cohort study of access to safe drinking water in Malawi: Community dissemination and engagement [calendar]
    (2023-04-20) Dorea, Caetano; Tilley, Elizabeth; Cassivi, Alexandra; Nhlema, Muthi; Carabin, Anne; Kazembe, James; Waygood, Owen
    A prospective cohort study was conducted in Southern Malawi in 2019, as part of a research project completed in 2020. The overall objective of this study was to increase knowledge surrounding access to drinking water and domestic hygiene; this was done through looking at it with a monitoring and assessment perspective. Presenting research findings and engaging with local communities is an integral part of this research project. Results lead to more realistic estimations, suitable intervention recommendations and appropriate responses to needs in view of achieving universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030, as targeted in the SDGs. The calendars that were designed were distributed in the three communities where fieldwork was conducted in 2019. The chiefs of each community were visited by Dr. Cassivi and a research assistant who also participated in data collection. The general results of the study were shared with the chiefs, followed with informal discussions. Some copies of the calendar were handed to the chief while the rest was distributed to households by our team.

    Mountain Legacies
    (Future Ecologies, 2022-12-17) Higgs, Eric; Rhemtulla, Jeanine M.; Sanseverino, Mary; Starzomski, Brian M.; Snow, Bill; Frey, Sandra; Fortin, Julie A.; Falk, Jenna; Fisher, Alina; Trant, Andrew J.; Walsh, Kristen Anne; Delaney, Jill; Watt, Rob; Skulski, Mendel; Huggins, Adam
    From a distance, mountain landscapes may appear timeless and immutable. Take a closer look, however, and montane ecologies reveal themselves to be laboratories of radical transformation: rocks weather and fall; ecosystems burst into life for brief intervals; tree-lines shift; and wildfires rage. Even the very peaks themselves inch inexorably upwards or downwards with the flow of time. Amidst all the constant, unyielding change that animates the Earth's high places, people have long sought a vantage from which to survey this shifting terrain. Who can resist the romance of a breathtaking, mountaintop view? Or then to imagine what generations past might have seen from the same spot? In the mid 1990s, a small group of scientists in western Canada grew dissatisfied with mere imagining — they wanted to see that change for themselves. And in a forgotten corner of a national archive, they found some very heavy boxes that held a rare promise: an opportunity to look back in time at a landscape scale.

    Exploring Indigenous understandings of family, safety and care as they relate to child welfare: a literature review
    (2022-08-18) Hawrys, Nathalia
    The purpose of this report is to address the short-termed and rigid conceptualizations of “family”, “care” and “safety” in child welfare services by juxtaposing Indigenous perspectives to the current models in legislation and practice. Raised research questions were tackled through a literature review in reputable databases. The resulting 42 sources were analyzed in their entirety and findings were explored in the final sections of this report. An important limitation to the reported findings lies in the diversity of Indigenous groups and their perceptions within Canada and the province of British Columbia, making rigid definitions of “family”, “safety” and “care” unattainable.

    Knowledge Mobilization Evaluation Frameworks and Methods
    (2022-08-18) Martin, Sydney
    Knowledge mobilization (KM), which connects research results and findings to policy and practice, is the keyway to translating these complex and diverse sources of evidence and data into leading-edge policies and programs. Conducting knowledge mobilization evaluation drives transparent, evidence-based policymaking, allows organizations to benefit from lessons learned within and outside their organizations, and enhances the trust of stakeholders that the decisions made by the organization are rooted in expertise and the consideration of feedback from multiple sources. This report aims to provide information on relevant frameworks, metrics, and methods to support MCFD in developing an approach to internal knowledge mobilization evaluation, including an assessment of the areas of compatibility with the ministry's Aboriginal Policy and Practices Framework (APPF).
