McGill receives $4.8 million to advance climate change science and technology
The Government of Canada’s Environmental Damages Fund, administered by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), is investing more than $4 million in three McGill-led projects through the Climate Awareness and Action Fund (CAAF).The projects will fill knowledge gaps about the environmental and economic impacts of greenhouse gas emissions and strengthen Canada's capacity to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
McGill’s funded projects will address critical data and knowledge gaps about greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on the environment. The projects led by Grant Clark (Department of Bioresource Engineering and the McGill School of Environment); Yi Huang (Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences); and Luis Miranda-Moreno, (Department of Civil Engineering), together with academic and industry collaborators, are funded for five years. The researchers’ goals are to quantify greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and to improve understanding of their impact on the environment, transportation, and urban living.
