Summary

There are more and more researchers in the North who want their work to benefit northerners, and wonder if their results are relevant to the communities they work near or with. This project reviewed five climate adaptation plans written in the Yukon over the past decade and conducted interviews focusing on the Dawson Climate Change Adaptation plan. The report outlines several barriers to incorporating climate research in the plans: a perception of climate change research, relevance and accessibility of research, communication, educational history, and human chemistry. The report does not evaluate plan implementation or effectiveness, but focused on the mechanisms of research uptake.
