This review by Melanie Zurba et al., 2021 explored knowledge coproduction principles and approaches from 2000-2020, and focuses on these aspects in the context ofthe Sustainable Nunatsiavut Futures Project and the Nunatsiavut region.

Using these principles to distribute power in projects such as the Sustainable Nunatsiavut Futures Project has shown immense potential, but it has also been identified that systemic & contextualized issues, such as data sovereignty must be consistently addressed in order to overcome roadblocks that can halt equitable sustainability science.

This paper highlighted that knowledge co-production studies often converge on four interrelated principles:

  1. Recognition of contextual diversity bounding knowledge co-production

  2. Preemptive and intentional engagement with Indigenous knowledge holders

  3. Formation of shared understanding of the purpose of knowledge co-production, and

  4. Empowerment of knowledge holders throughout the co-production cycle.
