Environment and Sustainable Development

Environmental protection and sustainable development issues have become important features of the public policy narrative, worldwide. In the case of Canada and the EU, there is significant potential for these actors to expand cooperation and to learn from one another in issues including: climate change and carbon emissions; agricultural sustainability and genetically modified foods; environmental policy coordination in multilevel systems; and energy security and the environment. This thematic research group was part of the CETD Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue project (2008-2017) incorporated multidisciplinary approaches for analyzing the interaction of economic, social, and environmental decision-making. This group payed special attention to the linkages between science and policy; public attitudes and activism; and the coordination of environmental policy in multilevel systems.
