T raditional K nowledge BOEM Alaska Region advocates for obtaining, using and inclusion of ‘Traditional Knowledge’ across all of our research and studies projects, programs and activities. Not only does it make sense, but it is critical to our missions. In more than 40 years and over 400 research projects and studies, scientists continue to affirm the significant impact and value of the input, insight and contributions provided by the Elders and the people. http://www.boem.gov/uploadedFiles/BOEM/Newsroom/Publications_Library/Ocean_Science/OS_12_apr_may_jun.pdf
Adding Value in our efforts
Management of offshore oil and gas resources is a sensitive issue -- perhaps more so in Alaska, with our pristine environment and vast mineral resources, than anywhere else. Issues are complex and the better all of us understand these issues, the better the resulting decisions are likely to be. In the interests of promoting understanding, the Alaska Region is committed to maintaining open and transparent communications with key shareholders -- particularly Alaska's Native organizations and Tribal Governments, which today carry on the traditions that have enriched Alaska since time immemorial. These ongoing efforts -- including community meetings, public hearings, public listening sessions, consultations, and other special activities are critical to the process of understanding and effective communications. We invite your interest, your comments, and your participation.
