A new study from the University of Ottawa’s Positive Energy program explores the relationships within public energy decision systems, specifically between regulators with responsibilities for the approval of resource development and infrastructure, and other actors in energy decision-making in Canada.
Prof. Chibuike Udenigwe, Faculty Affiliate, ISSP, Full Professor, Faculty of Health Sciences, uOttawa and the University Research Chair in Food Properties and Nutrient Bioavailability is on the leadership committee of the first research centre dedicated to studying the biological, social, cultural and economic determinants of health in Canada’s Black communities.
Over the past year, the ISSP has published multiple member blogs about how we need to transform decision-making to more effectively address grand challenges, such as transforming teaching, training and the science enterprise; fostering equity, diversity and inclusion in decision-making; putting into practice new decision-making models, and reframing how we think about science and technology in domestic and international policy. The compilation also includes a dedicated section on the grand challenges of COVID-19 and climate change.
