Provide advice informed by research and analysis to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change on pathways to net-zero.
Proposed priority streams
Catalytic / Motivating – bring together experts, stakeholders, Indigenous peoples, and partners to stimulate the agenda for the Canadian research community and to motivate national conversations on net-zero pathways;
Targeted – use dedicated NZAB funding and partnerships to address specific net-zero research questions to inform the NZAB’s advice to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change; and
Synthesis / Validation – bring together existing research, verify analyses from other organizations, and model NZAB proposals as required, to ensure NZAB advice is based on transparent and high-quality data.
Proposed priority methods
Public communication of priorities to catalyze new work.
Open calls for submissions of existing net-zero research and analysis.
Hosting/participating in thematic roundtables, conferences, and events.
Funding new research and analysis on specific topics/cross-cutting themes within lines of inquiry.
Building partnerships to support synthesis, validation and/or modelling needs.
Briefings with Canadian and international researchers, experts, stakeholders, Indigenous peoples, and NGOs.
Data, modelling, and analysis from federal officials.
Considerations for proposed priorities
Confirm our commitment to using credible, transparent, and high-quality data and analysis.
Recognize existing research and analysis, as well as existing networks of climate expertise on net-zero.
Enable NZAB to pursue targeted projects ourselves, but also to participate in and/or learn from activities led by others.
