COS Weekly Newsletter
The Canadian Institute for Climate Choices opened its doors Tuesday and marked the occasion by releasing an 80-page report examining the consequences of climate actions that Canada might take under different global pollution scenarios. The institute is operating on funding of $20 million from the Government of Canada over the next five years. The institute will maintain independent control over its own research and reporting, and is the result of a partnership between 15 climate-focused organizations that answered a federal call for proposals in 2018. The Canadian Institute for Climate Choices will be overseen by an 11-member board of directors. The new institute hopes to release three major reports each year, interspersed with some shorter papers, as well as regular notes and analysis, as events warrant.
