February 2016 – Submission for Consideration – Finance Canada

Following over fifteen meetings with senior-level bureaucrats, the Forum submitted a proposal to Finance Canada to fund a new multidisciplinary, multi-stakeholder initiative whose primary objective is “to mobilize and apply knowledge at the science-to-policy interface to generate policy options that directly address the climate challenge that Canada — and all countries — face.”

The Forum was invited to present this concept, the Canadian Climate Council, to the Standing Committee on Finance on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.
