Rating Canada's Climate Policy: Sustainable Canada Dialogues reports on 2016 progress
With the ratification of the Paris Agreement earlier this month, countries across the world have officially embarked on a global race to implement ambitious climate policies that contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the planetary scale. If Canada wants to shine in 2020, domestic climate policies must be adopted rapidly to accelerate the low-carbon transition.
In this context, 60+ cross-Canada scholars from the Sustainable Canada Dialogues network produced a progress report on Canada’s climate actions over the past year.
We analysed climate decisions made in Ottawa in 2016 in relation to the 10 policy orientations that we proposed in our position paper, Acting on Climate Change: Solutions from Canadian Scholars.
