Economics and Sustainability: IISD begins work to measure Canada's wealth and continues to examine models used to count the economic costs of climate change
It is an unfortunate reality that in Canada, there is little measurement of environmental trends, and the indicators themselves are often rather narrow in their scope.
To address these shortcomings, the Ivey Foundation has funded IISD to prepare an inclusive wealth report for Canada. The report will be indicator based, with strong narrative elements to help readers understand what is being measured and why it is important. This one-page document outlines the issue, and describes what the report will look like, and what its purpose is.
