Research dedicated to meeting the multi-faceted climate-change challenge is at the core of what we do at PICS. Within a collaborative and multi-disciplinary framework, PICS supports more than 30 projects in five main research themes. We provide about three dozen graduate and post-doctoral research fellowships and 10 employment internships each year, and we commission leading edge and topical research from academics and subject-area experts from BC and around the world.
The result is a knowledge base of white papers, briefing notes and other publications that can be used to inform and guide anyone from policy makers to educators, researchers to the interested public.
Current Research Themes:
- The Low Carbon Emissions Economy
- Social Mobilization
- Sustainable Communities
- Resilient Ecosystems
- Carbon Management in BC Forests
