CLIMATE CHANGE RESEARCH AT SFU
Adressing environmental concerns and creating a sustainable future is one of the key priority research challenges identified in the SFU's Strategic Research Plan for 2016 - 2020. As highligted in the SRP "solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation are a key part of harnessing change into improved outcomes. Addressing the far-reaching effects of climate change will require collaboration with local and international communities to help ensure that research informs decision-making and enables actions that improve the global welfare of people and the planet".
Simon Fraser University (SFU) has an active Climate Change Research and Energy Solutions Programs. Areas of research include greenhouse gas mitigation and sustainable energy systems (EMRG), climate change impacts (CCIRC), adaptation to climate change (ACT) and alternative energy solutions with the Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE) Program, and the Human-Centered Systems for Sustainable Living and the Climate.
SFU is also a founding member of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS). As a founding member, SFU researchers are well positioned to contribute to the development of innovative climate change solutions, seek new opportunities for positive adaptation to climate change, and lead the way to a vibrant low carbon economy in BC and globally.
