Presented by CIPS

The effects of climate change are becoming ever more evident. Rising temperatures, drought, and  extreme weather events seem part of nearly every news cycle. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has called for ‘rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society’ in order to curtail climate change, and Canadian voters consider climate change among the top three issues in the coming election.  But is Canada doing enough to tackle climate change and environmental degradation?  How will climate change impact Canada and Canadians, and how can the global governance of environmental challenges be improved? Our panel of environment and climate change experts will address these and other questions connected with one of the most important political and foreign policy issues of our time.

Panelists:

Ryan Katz-Rosene, School of Political Studies

Nick Rivers, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs

 

This panel is the last in the series “Voting for a Better World? Foreign Policy in the 2019 Election,” hosted by CIPS and funded by an SSHRC Exchange Grant.
