About the Canadian International Resources and Development Institute (CIRDI):
CIRDI was founded in 2013 by three leading universities: University of British Columbia (UBC), Simon Fraser University and Polytechnique Montréal, and is now housed within UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs. Since its founding, CIRDI has become a trusted inter-disciplinary centre of expertise on natural resource governance and related policy, management and sustainable development. With Canadian and international partners, CIRDI has been providing leading-practice advice, technical support, training and applied research, and established itself as a platform for innovative thinking, knowledge mobilization and shared learning. Over the past five years, CIRDI has delivered programming across 22 project sites, with 186 partners, including academic institutions, local communities, embassies, industry associations, international and regional agencies, NGOs and non-profits, and private and government partners.
The initial suite of projects delivered under CIRDI’s founding Contribution Agreement with Global Affairs Canada (GAC) is in the final stages of implementation and is due to conclude this spring. This provides a timely opportunity to consolidate research, project outcomes and lessons learned across all our projects.
The workshop will feature participants from Argentina, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Guyana, Kenya, Mongolia, Peru, Senegal and Canada, representing academia, government, civil society, and industry. The panels will reflect on gender equality, inclusive governance and environmental sustainability within the natural resource sector, while also examining the links and tensions between research and practice in international development project.
