Description:On April 30 and May 1, 1999, the Alberta Economic Development Authority and the Government of Alberta sponsored a provincial Climate Change Round Table of over 100 leaders from industry, academia, municipal governments and environmental groups, ass well as the public. The Round Table produced a consensus to take immediate action on climate change. One of the key recommendations was to establish a provincial coordinating body - Climate Change Central (C3) - to be operated as a public/private sector partnership. Premier Ralph Klein committed to creating C3 to promote implementation of actions, be a catalyst and coordinator, and monitor and report on progress. Climate Change Central was established in the fall of 1999.
