Environmental Trends and Environmental Governance in Canada
AbstractSince the 1960s, environmental stresses in the industrialized world have shifted from predominantly local to global scale, from separate to increasingly tightly coupled stresses, and from readily observable acute stresses to subtle, chronic, and long-term ones. Central challenges in sucessful governance of the environment over the next few decades will involve developing more effective ways to integrate high quality, objective scientific and technical assessment with key decision needs; learning more effective processes for managing under uncertainty and responding adaptively to advances in knowledge; and effectively coordinating inevitably shared authority and capacity across multiple levels of government and between diverse public and private actors.
