A new book, Reflections on Connecting Canada’s Climate Policy Network, will be published open-access by the Canada Climate Law Initiative in 2023.

This webinar will explore the book’s key messages and discuss how to improve climate policy coordination, blurring public and private divides, and revealing where responsibility for change must rest.

According to the Supreme Court of Canada, in 2021, the nation was “failing to meet” the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets required to mitigate the “grave threat to humanity’s future” posed by climate change due to its lack of climate policy coordination at the subnational level. The severity of climate-related risks and impacts means there is urgent need for much greater cooperation between governments at all levels in Canada, and between Canadian and foreign governments, to implement policy solutions.

The webinar will feature the book’s co-editor, Dr. Fenner Stewart, as well as authors who represent a diversity of perspectives.
