Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) emphasises the deep participation of community residents in research projects, including the proposal of research questions, the setting of research methods, and the feedback of research results. Therefore, in CBPR, the communication between community residents and researchers has become particularly important.
However, for a multinational and multidisciplinary research group, the communication between community residents and researchers will become particularly challenging. The challenges not only come from differences in languages, cultures and social systems between different countries, but also from differences in knowledge background and disciplinary differences.
This report uses a well water quality test project in a remote pastoral community in Inner Mongolia as a case study to reflect on the challenges encountered in the implementation of the project from the perspective of “sciences for community”. The discussion will focus on the challenges encountered in creation of the community-based knowledge.
