Event description

Description

Climate change is a major challenge of 21st century. Significant scientific and technical progress and innovative solutions are required by the world community, including Canada to address this challenge. While economists argue that carbon pricing should be central in leading climate-friendly innovations, technology-specific policies, such as renewable energy resources developments can make significant contributions and have seen greater public support worldwide.
