Congratulations to Undergraduate Thesis Student Crystal Gong, who is one of the honorees being recognized by the Guelph Y 2018 Guelph Women of Distinction.
Crystal is working on our research team on two research projects: (1) synthesizing the state of knowledge on food security in the context of climate change, and (2) examining how season is associated with food security.

- We examine the application of Community Based Adaptation (CBA) approaches in Indigenous community settings.

- CBA can also have unintended negative consequences.
- CBA requires careful consideration of community-researcher relationships and meaningful engagement of knowledge users.
- CBA holds significant promise but only in the ‘right’ circumstances.
