Ports modernization: Balancing economic prosperity and environmental sustainability
Dalhousie / October 30, 2018
Policy Matters Speaker Series, MacEachen institute for Public Policy and Governance, Dalhousie University.
As the Canadian Government embarks on a “Ports Modernization Review” with the aim of better positioning Canadian Port Authorities to optimize the role of ports as innovative assets that support inclusive growth and trade, some key elements have been left out of the conversation. This panel will discuss the requirements for necessary change within port operations, governance and environmental performance if Canadian ports are to be globally competitive in an increasingly privatized, carbon-constrained industry that plays both a positive and negative role in Canada’s drive for a more “sustainable future”.
