More Promise than Practice: GBA+, Intersectionality and Impact Assessment

This knowledge synthesis project extends our knowledge about promising practices in intersectional impact assessments by turning to international literature and examples. We are interested in how to better understand and respond to the experiences of Indigenous women and Two-Spirit persons, youth, and people with disabilities in resource development and extraction contexts. Guided by an Advisory Circle of knowledge experts and users1, the specific objectives of this research are to: (1) identify and critically assess existing international practices in impact assessments; (2) identify knowledge gaps and promising practices and proposals in these areas; and (3) share research findings through social media, knowledge mobilization fora, websites, academic publications, and Advisory Circle networks.
