The National Roundtable of the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE) has been asked by the Minister of the Environment to conduct an independent analysis of provincial and territorial climate change plans and policies to assess their likely contribution to achieving the Government of Canada’s 2020 emissions target of 17% percent below 2005 levels. Navius Research Inc. was contracted to conduct an analysis of existing and proposed provincial and territorial policies to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) by 2020. This document provides a summary of results from Task 1 (prioritizing provincial and territorial climate policies) and Task 2 (quantifying abatement from these policies) of this analysis.
On July 2, 2002 the NRTEE suspended the Ecological Fiscal Reform, Substances of Concern (SoC) case study. The purpose of this report is to review the EFR SoC case study process, and the activities of the SoC Working Group (WG), in order to learn from the successes and failures. The information contained in this report is intended solely for internal use by the NRTEE.
This is the executive summary of a research paper that identifies the main elements of the legal, regulatory and policy framework applicable to non-renewable resource development in the NWT, and assesses the framework to determine its strengths and weaknesses in ensuring development occurs in a manner that promotes sustainable development, and more specifically a balance between economic, environmental and social interests.
