Graeme Auld

Professor, School of Public Policy and Administration, Carleton University


Inspired as a student by the highly publicized logging disputes over coastal forests in his home province of British Columbia, Graeme Auld turned his attention towards understanding how we govern natural resources and our collective and individual environmental impacts. Today, Auld is a celebrated professor, the author of several award-winning books on environmental politics and policy, and formally recognized by the Royal Society of Canada as a national leader in environmental governance.

Cross-appointed to the Institute of Political Economy and School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University, Auld is a member of the Academic Advisory Council for the United Nations Forum on Sustainability Standards (UNFSS). His work has focused on the politics and policy surrounding the use, management, and conservation of resources and the environment across geographic scales to tackle global problems such as climate change.
