OTTAWA, Oct. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - To mark its 20th anniversary year, the
National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE) will host a
unique round table forum entitled Securing Canada's Future in a Climate
Changing World. The Forum will be chaired by Pierre Marc Johnson.
Climate change has emerged as this century's most far-reaching global
sustainable development challenge and, as such, Canada's economic and
environmental future will be determined in large part by how we, and the rest
of the world, respond to the current and emerging threats and opportunities
posed by a changing climate.
During this forum, the NRTEE and a wide-ranging group of eminent
Canadians will examine how climate change is expected to affect Canada's
environmental and economic security through the lenses of our ecosystems, our
energy economy, and our Arctic environment.
The NRTEE 20th Anniversary Forum objectives include engaging an
influential group of stakeholders and subject experts to identify:
- The priority climate change issues facing Canada for each round table
- Current policy gaps and potential policy solutions for addressing these
- Implications for policy development and governance
