Plain Language Summary
In this research project, we will identify and define the risks and impacts of mining and other forms of disturbances on the socioeconomic and ecological well being of Indigenous communities. We develop a detailed list of socioeconomic and ecological indicators and an assessment framework to guide regional cumulative effects assessment. The project will improve knowledge on the cumulative effects of mining and other disturbances on Indigenous communities. It will also encourage stakeholders to take a holistic view on setting and implementing sustainable mine restoration for Indigenous community wellbeing. The assessment framework can serve as a guide to examine the effectiveness of policy and program options that seek to advance the participation of Indigenous peoples in the mining industry.
