Monday, November 22, 2021
Organized by: Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI)
This interactive session explores a unique approach to science-policy collaboration between Canada and the intergovernmental organization, IAI, to develop skills in early career researchers to address global environmental change in Latin America and the Caribbean. Panelists will share their experience as fellows participating in an Inter-American capacity building network as well as Canadian institutions serving as hosts and mentors to the next generation of science, technology, and policy leaders. The audience will interact with speakers on cultivating effective skills from diverse cultural lenses and how transdisciplinary training can assist in strengthening commonalities between Canada and its partners in the Americas.
