TomorrowNow Manitoba: Dialogues toward strengthening Manitoba's bioeconomy

By on January 19, 2014

In 2012 the Government of Manitoba released its sustainable development plan, TomorrowNow: Manitoba's Green Plan.

Among its commitments is the creation of a green economy action plan and an update to the province's climate change action plan. In order to meet these commitments, the International Institute for Sustainable Development, along with the University of Winnipeg, is assisting the province in addressing the need to transition to a green economy and low-carbon development framework for Manitoba by identifying the necessary actions to accomplish this task.

The work will be done through a series of research activities and public policy dialogues with stakeholders, which are being led by the project partners. The second such consultation was held on December 3, 2013, and facilitated an open dialogue with stakeholders on how Manitoba can grow its bioeconomy and bioproducts sectors. This report outlines what was discussed, including some of the key areas for future action.
