Canadian Institute of Planners: Policy on Climate Change

This is the climate change policy statement by the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP). "The policy includes 8 directives that lay out the actions CIP endorses to ensure that planners contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation. The directives have far-reaching implications for CIP and its members, compelling each to 1) take constructive action towards advancing knowledge on this topic; 2) share information among the planning, science and academic communities; and 3) engage in research and partnership activities. The CIP is also developing a 'report card' approach to monitoring implementation of the policy by its members."
