MULTISECTORAL SESSIONS TO DATE
About New Dip
At the United Nations Association in Canada, we know that the future of natural resource development depends on sustainable development, but finding the right balance between economic growth, environmental protection, and secure quality of life is one of the major challenges faced by our country today. A series of collaborative sessions that include all Canadian stakeholders, the New Diplomacy of Natural Resources provides a forum for the development of innovative and comprehensive solutions to natural resource management.
During the event, delegates:
Adopt the roles of key stakeholders in the process and engage in effective multisectoral consultation, including government, indigenous groups, industry, and environmental NGOs
Hear from high-level keynote speakers in the field
Network with peers and industry leaders
Participate in an Op-Ed Competition with cash prizes for the top three entries and a possible publishing opportunity for the winner
Develop skills in negotiations and cross-sectoral relationship-building
The core of The New Diplomacy of Natural Resources is a day-long
multi-sectoral stakeholder simulation.
With the guidance of distinguished subject matter experts and national leaders, delegates convene in a deliberative stakeholder simulation to seek solutions to some of the foundational issues in natural resource development and innovation.
