European Environmental Governance: Options for Cooperation
Successive policy challenges and EU enlargement have added layers of policy, legislation, and institutions to create the current system for addressing environment, climate, energy, and sustainable development. R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic Institute was invited to speak on "European Environmental Governance: Options for Cooperation" at the Centre for European Studies of Carleton University, Ottawa, ON, on 28 September 2009.
A key factor is the importance of formal and informal fora or platforms for trans-national policy learning. This may be of interest to Canada, not only in view of market access and transatlantic regulatory cooperation, but also as a way to disseminate Canadian success stories and technologies and identify policy solutions that might be adapted and adopted. R. Andreas Kraemer, spells out what might be done to enhance cooperation in this important area.
