The resulting report, which is part of Metcalf's Green Prosperity Paper Series, presented recommendations for reform with respect to the federal environmental assessment process, and broader issues related to governance for sustainability including public participation in decision-making, access to information, and the role of the Federal Sustainable Development Act.
