Canada in a Post-2012 World: A Qualitative Assessment of Domestic and International Perspectives

By Jo-Ellen Parry, Warren Bell, John Van Ham, John Drexhage, Peter Dickey on November 8, 2005
Canada in a Post-2012 World explores Canadian and international perspectives on establishing a sustainable, global regime for climate change action. It provides a set of analytical tools to help frame Canadian perspectives on the range of international options being considered for a post-Kyoto world, and an initial assessment of how Canadian sensitivities and perspectives might be received by critical Parties in the global community. One common theme that emerges is that the threat of climate change is real—some impacts are already visible—and Canada needs to respond in a meaningful way that works to position the country as a leader in a clean energy future.
