ELOKA - Exchange for Local Observations and Knowledge of the Arctic - data service
Entry ID: ELOKA_PROJECT
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The goal of ELOKA is to facilitate the collection, preservation, exchange, and use of local observations and knowledge of the Arctic by providing data management and user support, and to foster collaboration between local and international researchers. Over the last decade, Arctic residents and indigenous peoples have been increasingly involved in, and taking control of, research. Through Local and Traditional Knowledge (LTK) research and community-based monitoring, Arctic communities have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to understanding recent environmental change.

ELOKA supports LTK research and community-based monitoring, as these are key components of any viable Arctic Observing Network (AON). ELOKA provides a data management and networking service for this research that keeps control of data in the hands of community data providers, while still allowing for broad searches and sharing of information.

Description: ELOKA is an international collaborative effort that launched during IPY. A diverse group of communities, organizations, Arctic residents, and researchers are working together to develop ELOKA. There is an urgent need for effective and appropriate means of recording, preserving, and sharing the information collected in Arctic communities. ELOKA aims to fill this gap.
