PubCast – Transforming Conflict Over Natural Resources

This PubCast shares our latest work on transforming conflict over agriculture and water in the Canadian Prairies. Agricultural drainage is a complicated and often conflict-ridden natural resource management issue, impacting contested ecosystem services related to the retention of wetlands as well as the productivity of farmland. This research identifies opportunities to transform the conflict over agricultural drainage in Saskatchewan, Canada, towards collaboration.

Pubcasts are hosted by the Conservation of Change Lab ( and are an ongoing project to experiment with science communication and making research more accessible and digestible to both scientific and general audiences. We were inspired to start Pubcasts via our own love of podcasts, demystifying science and the role of researchers in science, and the power of the human voice.
