Bridging communities and researchers for respectful collaboration

MBDC crafted a website for the Kluane First Nation community, encouraging researchers to “pitch” research projects while addressing the historical disconnect between external researchers and local people in the Lhù’ààn Mân region. The site—developed on Webflow—introduces Kluane protocols, offers an interactive climate change research map, and outlines clear community expectations and research priorities. With features emphasizing Indigenous knowledge and First Nations OCAP (Ownership, Control, Access, Possession) principles, the platform fosters genuine collaboration, ensuring that future research is respectful, inclusive, and beneficial for the Kluane community.
