North America 2030: An Environmental Outlook    Wed Jun 25, 2008, Ottawa, ON

North America 2030: An Environmental Outlook
A conference hosted by the Joint Public Advisory Committee of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation

25 June 2008
Government Conference Centre
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Forecasts show North America in 2030 will look much like North America today Ė only more so. More people, more energy consumed, bigger cities, more cars and trucks moving more goods, and an ever greater and more complex integration of the economies of Canada, Mexico and the United States.

To assess the environmental impact of this growth and development, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) is gathering information on the key economic and social trends shaping the next two decades in North America.

On 25 June 2008, the CECís Joint Public Advisory Committee (JPAC) will host North America 2030: An Environmental Outlook. This conference will feature expert and public discussion of the forecast for population growth, urbanization, energy and food security, competition for habitat and resources, transportation, and climate change. The focus will be the potential for cooperative solutions, and will assist the JPAC in its advice to the CEC Council on environmental priority-setting for the years ahead.

This conference is open to the public and is free of charge. Registration includes a networking lunch and evening reception to mark the commencement of the following dayís 15th Regular Session of the CEC Council. On-site registration begins the evening of 24 June.
