This conference is the first step of a multistage research project, which aims to improve climate policy outcomes through better alignment of policy actors. The project is predicated upon a simple notion: when actors improve their understanding of the networks in which they operate, they also improve their chances of discovering new ways to coordinate their efforts with others. In turn, better coordination results in better outcomes, which equals faster decarbonization.
Accordingly, this conference explores the past, present, and potential futures of Canada’s climate policy network. It will connect climate policy actors to discuss this network’s layers of actors, norms, and processes.
This event qualifies for 3.0 CPD credits.
